Razer has recently posted via their Facebook page that 2 of their prototype models of their upcoming product, the Razer Blade, has been stolen. The Core i7-packing mobile gaming sexiness which Razer dubs as the “true gaming laptop” were reported to have been taken in Razer’s Bay Area Research and Development lab.
Razer has stated their direct opposition to the purchase of the stolen products and are asking for information that may lead to the return of their prototypes. Below is the original post found in their Facebook page:
Dear Razer Community,
Over the weekend of 11/4/11, we had a break-in at one of our Razer offices. Two Razer Blade prototypes were stolen from our Bay area R&D lab.
As you can imagine, the return of these prototype units is very important to the company. We have already reported this to the authorities who are working closely with us on this matter.
We take this act of theft seriously and would like to appeal for its return and discourage anyone from buying the Razer Blade prototypes from the perpetrators, whether online or otherwise, as they are stolen property.
We appreciate any and all information anyone may have on the incident. Please contact us at cu**@ra*******.com if you have any information.
Thank you for all your support.
One might remember a similar robbery incident involving a prototype iPhone 4S which was lost in a bar and was reported to authorities which was ultimately proven false by the authorities when they stated that there was no such report in their records. More recently still is what we’ve come to call the Great Modern Warfare Heist where a reported 700,000 Euros or more worth of MW3 copies were stolen.
We hope for a swift conclusion to this case and immediate return of the stolen products.
