Gaming-focused PC maker Razer was at CES in Las Vegas last week showing off its new laptop with three 17-inch screens, but someone stole two of the three prototypes the company took to the show from its booth.
While the chunky-looking ‘Project Valerie’ laptop probably doesn’t strike you as the ultimate in portability, the ability to have three 4K displays with you at all times is unarguably unique – as such, the devices aren’t production ready models, they’re prototypes. As a result, Razer is worried about the very real possibility of the company’s tech secrets ending up with rivals, though, it’s not assuming industrial espionage was the motivation.
In a post on Facebook, a spokesperson for the company confirmed the theft, and that a $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to “the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect. Razer, in its sole discretion, will decide who is entitled to a reward and in what amount. Razer may pay only a portion of the maximum reward offered. The decision will be based primarily upon law enforcement’s evaluation of the value of the information provided.”
Anyone that does have information is being urged to contact [email protected].
