Stolen Razer Laptop Found On Chinese Website
Not long ago, the gaming hardware company Razer, along with the Internet, went wild when Project Valerie's debut at CES 2017 was overshadowed by news of its loss. The prototypes of the world's first automated triple display setup were thought to be stolen. This was later confirmed when Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan set up a $25,000 reward for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect. The product was allegedly taken from Razer press room at around 4 PM on Sunday, January 8, 2017.
Razer's Project Valerie is meant to provide immersive gaming while being portable at the same time, sporting 3 4K displays. The portable triple display workstation which weighs 5.4 Kilograms and can be folded to just 1.5-inch thick, just enough to be swiped by a hand or two during a busy convention.
"Multi-monitor desktop set-ups are becoming more necessary for professionals, creators, and gamers," said Min-Liang Tan. "For the first time, we've engineered a solution that users can take with them. Project Valerie promises all of the functionality of three screens and none of the hassle."
Apparently, one of the stolen prototypes had been spotted on the popular Chinese eCommerce website Taobao. The prototype on the site up for grabs for 150,000 Yuan which is about $21,700.
However, Zing Gadget reports that the post was immediately taken down by the "seller". The move sounds really shady. We shouldn't rule out the possibility that the post was a prank but it does put the investigation two steps back if that is the case.
Razer will still accept information regarding the stolen hardware. The CEO pleads in a Facebook post to reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org. He assures that all information forwarded will be kept confidential. The $25,000 reward will be good for one whole year from the date it was first offered.
