Prototype Razer gaming laptops stolen from lab Razer, the company behind the upcoming 17-inch Blade gaming laptop has said today that two prototypes have been stolen from their R&D lab in California.
The company says they are working with authorities and is urging fans not to purchase the laptops online, or via classified ads.

What makes the Blade a "gaming laptop" is the fact that it has customizable keys that require custom software from developers.

Additionally, the laptop has an LCD panel next to the keys that serves as either a multi-touch controller or to show in-game stats like lives, ammo, etc.

The Razer Blade has a 17-inch display, an Intel Core i7 at 3.5GHz, 8GB DDR3 memory and a GeForce GT555m with 2GB GDDR5. The laptop will sell for $2800.

Seems like a simple solution to me. They just need to call the same "cops" apple did when their prototype iphone's got stolen. They can then send a swat team over without warrants, kick the door in, and retrieve the items.


If your fish seems sick, put it back in the water.
