Prototype models of Razer’s three-screen gaming laptop have been reportedly stolen from the company’s booth at the CES in Las Vegas.

The products were taken from the Razer press room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Razer is offering a reward of about $25,000 for original information which will help the company to lead to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect.

Razer has already filed a report and is in works with the show management as well as law enforcement to address the issue.

“At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. 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,” Razer’s spokesperson Min-Lian Tang said in a post on Facebook.

“We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously – it is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us. Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart,” he added.

Gaming PC maker Razer unveiled the concept model of the gaming laptop on January 6 at the CES this year.

The laptop features three 4K screens, each 17-inch in size. The two additional screens possessed by the laptop slides out from the central display via an automatic mechanism, and when folded, the laptop becomes 1.5mm thick.

Razer has claimed the laptop to be the world’s first portable laptop of its kind.
