Razer has announced a reward for information regarding two of its Project Valeriee laptops, said to have disappeared from its CES press room. The pair of prototype devices, which feature a unique triple-display setup, were taken from the room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8.
Razer said it would pay only for original information which leads to the “identification, arrest and conviction” of a criminal suspect and that it would retain the right to payout only a portion of the full $25,000 reward. See the full statement Razer sent to Polygon below.
“This note is to confirm that two Razer Project Valerie laptop prototypes were stolen from the Razer booth at CES. The product was taken from the Razer press room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017. A $25,000 reward is being offered for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect. Razer, in its sole discretion, will decide who is entitled to a reward and in what amount. Razer may pay only a portion of the maximum reward offered. The decision will be based primarily upon law enforcement’s evaluation of the value of the information provided. When there are multiple claimants, the reward will be shared in amounts determined by Razer. Razer associates are not eligible for the reward. This reward offer is good for one year from the date it is first offered, unless extended by Razer. Information about the theft can be sent to email@example.com. Razer will not publicly disclose material that it receives or details about respondents, except to those persons with whom Razer is directly working to resolve this matter or as may be required by law.”
At least Razer can now be confident that — should such a device go to market — it would be a highly sought-after product.
