The San Francisco research lab belonging to gaming hardware manufacturer Razer suffered a break-in on November 4th, and two laptops were stolen. Might not sound like a big deal, but these two machines were prototypes from the company, one of which was being used for a week-long thermal test.
Now, Min-Liang Tan, company CEO, has called for their return via a public statement made on Facebook.
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.
At the current time, police have no suspects, but the intruder accessed the building using an official security card, raising suspicions among employees.
So – if you’ve heard of anyone who’s recently picked up a couple of shiny new Razer laptops, and are acting a little strange about how they acquired them – it might be a good idea to contact email@example.com with any information.
