Thieves make off with two Razer Blade prototype laptops

Thieves really suck; I think most of us will agree with that. There are few things worse than people who take the things other people work hard to make or buy in my book. You might recall the sweet Razer Blade hybrid gaming notebook that broke cover a while back. The big feature of this gaming notebook was the touchscreen on the right where the boring number pad would normally be.

Razer has announced that on the weekend of November 4 unknown persons or person broke into their San Francisco Bay research facility and made off with a pair of prototype Blade machines. Razer is asking for the help of the geek hoards with finding and getting these laptops returned. The company also asks that you don't buy these machines online or anywhere else if you run across them.

The machines are stolen property and Razer is working with the police to find the thieves and to secure the return of the machines. If you have any information on the theft or whereabouts of the stolen machines, Razer wants you to contact them at

"As you can imagine, the return of these prototype units is very important to the company," according to a Facebook post. "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."
