I would also like to know if its possible for it to tell you all of that at once , I know its a long shot but hey
1) keep in mind that the actual keys, you know, the things you will be using 99.999% of the time, feel like total crap.
2) yeah the little screen can show all kinds of stuff if programmed to do so. That said the programs for it really arnt upkept well. 90% of them are highly outdated and dont work with modern versions of programs (for example skype... you need to get a 2 year old version to skype to use it with the screen)
3) anything on the screen is being run as a program on your cpu, and then pushed to the screen. This means the more you have on the screen, the more you are slowing down your system during games. For instance, to have temp monitor, and fps, and cpu usage, and gpu usage... you need to have fraps, sirreal, speedfan, and rivatuner, plus 3 little plugin style programs that push the info from the previous programs to the lcd screen.
4) if you dont need the screen built into your keyboard, you can get a G13 which has the same screen. If you dont care for the G13, you can just get yourself an actual lcd screen and put things directly on it. For the stupidly high price of that keyboard, you can get yourself a decent little full color decent res screen, plus a $3 dell keyboard (which will actually have better keys.. sadly)
Not trying to tell you not to buy the thing, just trying to inform you of the reasons behind peoples comments that logitech is crap. If you're cool with all that and want it anyway, be my guest.
