The Razer Kabuto is a smaller fabric and foam rubber mouse pad that doubles as a notebook screen protector when placed on your keyboard and closed for a truly portable and versatile mouse surface.

How much I enjoy 20/25
No doubt about it, I love larger mouse pads and Razer as well as SteelSeries makes some of the best large mouse pads but small ones do have their uses. Take the Razer Kabuto that not only works well for a small traveling mouse pad but you can use it as a protector for your laptop or notebook screen when placed on the keys and closed.
Care must be taken when flopping the pad on your keyboard to ensure you don’t get it in the way of any protrusions like the latch that holds your laptop shut but this should not be that difficult. The foam rubber surface would of course go down against the keys and the soft fabric side would go to protect your screen for a truly versatile mouse pad.
Of course the mouse pad would not be complete without Razer’s attention to detail and gaming performance so you have the stylish Razer logo in the corner. The words Razer and Kabuto are in the other corner and the mouse pad is very nice for smooth mouse performance with it’s slick fabric surface.
The Razer Kabuto performs well as a mouse pad for great gaming and general mouse performance with its smooth fabric surface that is made from a close knit microfiber material. I’m not sure what the fabric or microfiber material is made of but it is a close knit fabric that makes for a smooth tracking surface using optical and laser mice.
As with most other Razer surfaces the Kabuto is great for gaming even though it is small but it also makes a great protector for your laptop screen. The Razer Kabuto is 11 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches tall and about 1.2mm thick which is less than a 1/16th of an inch – Thanks to TechInsider for the specialised information relating to this.
The Kabuto is a thin pad, a little thinner than a dime, thinner than a penny and definitely thinner than a nickel as a comparison. The Kabuto is the thinnest mouse pad I have reviewed or owned and is really very inexpensive at only $20 which is not much more than those generic mouse pads available everywhere.
I have seen store bought ones that are just cheap mouse pads for the same price as well as those cute ones or patriotic with flags for sale at Wal-Mart for only a little less. The Razer Kabuto makes for a nice mouse mat as well as a screen protector for your notebook that makes for a great all around mouse surface.
I highly recommend the Razer Kabuto for a great smaller mouse pad that also makes a great notebook screen protector that only costs about $20.
