Razer loses Blade gaming laptop prototypes in Nov. 4 break-in

Razer sends word that it has lost two prototype laptops in a break-in at its Bay Area offices.

High-end gaming-peripheral-maker Razer sends word of an office break-in that occurred the weekend of November 4.

Gone missing: two prototypes of its Razer Blade high-end gaming laptops.


The following came from Razer's PR representative:

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 cult@razerzone.com if you have any information.

Razer announced the Blade this past August with a teaser ad in the Wall Street Journal. The laptop is set to feature an ultrathin design and a unique gaming-oriented touch pad.

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
