Razer’s Project Valerie – a ludicrous triple-screen laptop with insane specs – was quite possibly the best thing at CES 2017.

Then two of Razer’s prototypes were stolen.

Now the company is offering a hefty reward for anyone with original information about the theft. According to a statement provided to Polygon:

This note is to confirm that two Razer Project Valerie laptop prototypes were stolen from the Razer booth at CES. The product was taken from the Razer press room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017. A $25,000 reward is being offered for original 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. When there are multiple claimants, the reward will be shared in amounts determined by Razer. Razer associates are not eligible for the reward. This reward offer is good for one year from the date it is first offered, unless extended by Razer. Information about the theft can be sent to [email protected]. Razer will not publicly disclose material that it receives or details about respondents, except to those persons with whom Razer is directly working to resolve this matter or as may be required by law.”

So if you were at CES and noticed something shady going on at the Razer booth, or happen to be roommates with someone with kleptomaniac tendencies sporting a new triple-screen laptop, shoot Razer an email.
