TWO OF RAZER’S TRIPLE-MONITOR LAPTOPS WERE STOLEN AT CES 2017
There’s little doubt you noticed Razer’s rather interesting triple-monitor laptop being shared all over social media last week. Well, guess what? Two of the prototypes were stolen at CES 2017 on Sunday.
According to a Facebook post from Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan (thanks, Gamespot), two of the prototypes known as Project Valerie were stolen from the firm’s booth during the Las Vegas trade show.
The company is working with both law enforcement and show management on the situation, and Razer is offering a $25,000 reward for original information leading to the “identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect.”
“Our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest,” wrote Tan. “We treat theft, larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously.
“Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart.”
Tan goes on to notes the Project Valerie units were stolen from the Razer press room at approximately 4 pm PT on Sunday, January 8.
The post goes on to note stipulations regarding the reward, such as overall value of information provided, monetary amount offered should multiple informants come forward, and other legalities.

Wow, how does this happen? What are your thoughts?
