Razer's BlackWidow Chroma keyboard is getting a smaller, sleeker tournament edition and it goes on sale today.

To make the BlackWidow Tournament Edition Chroma Keyboard smaller, Razer removed the number pad, the five macro keys on the left side of the board, the USB passthrough and the audio plugs. The keyboard now comes with a detachable cable, improved Razer mechanical switches and its own carrying case.

The $139.99 tournament edition board still includes the 16.8 million customizable color options, which allow you to define your own key zones lighting effects and add multiple layers of customization.
