    Two prototype models of
    an unusual gaming laptop
    with three screens have
    been stolen at the CES tech
    show in Las Vegas,

    according to PC maker Razer.
    The concept device boasts three 4K
    screens and is said to be the first
    portable laptop of its kind.
    Razer said the laptops had gone missing
    from its booth at the tech show on
    Sunday.
    The incident was being taken "very
    seriously", said chief executive Min-Liang
    Tan.
    A Razer spokesman said it was offering
    $25,000 (£20,600) for any "original
    information leading to the identification,
    arrest and conviction" of those allegedly
    involved in the crime.
    "Our teams worked months on end to
    conceptualise and develop these units,"
    Mr Tan said in a post on his official
    Facebook page.
    "It is cheating, and cheating doesn't sit
    well with us. Anyone who would do this
    clearly isn't very smart."
    Security 'a priority' A spokeswoman for
    the Consumer
    Technology Association, which runs CES,
    confirmed to the BBC that two laptops
    had been reported as stolen.
    "We express our regrets," she said. "The
    security of our exhibitors, attendees and
    their products and materials are our
    highest priority.
    "We use a wide variety of security
    measures at our show to combat theft.
    "For example, we delay labour coming
    on the show floor until an hour after the
    show closes so that exhibitors have a
    chance to secure product before
    dismantling their
    booths." More from the Consumer

    Headquartered in California, Razer was
    started by Singaporean entrepreneur
    Min-
    Liang Tan.
    The brand enjoys a cult status among
    the gaming community, and gamers
    from around the world expressed their
    excitement about the device which is
    part of
    the firms Project Valerie.
    "Razer always finds a way to outclass
    other brands. No offense to people who
    like other products," said Jason Vicencio.
    "This device is a dream come true for
    every gamer on the go, no more having
    to cram
    graphics and line of vision into just one
    screen," commented Artie Derilo.
    "I would love to open this up on an
    airplane while sitting in the middle seat,"
    joked Marvin England
    But other Facebook users like Malachy
    Hamilton questioned its design.
    "What's the point in three screens? The
    point of a laptop is portability and being
    able to do work and some light gaming
    on
    the go," he said.
    "For this, you'd need a beefy battery
    which would increase the weight,
    therefore making it less of a laptop."
    Project Valerie is still a prototype and
    Razer has not yet published a possible
    release date or price.
    Publicity stunt?
    Todd Prince, gaming reporter for the Las
    Vegas Review-Journal who was at the
    event,
    told the BBC the theft was a surprise,
    given the tight security.
    "There were cameras all over the place
    and how someone was actually able to
    get this
    out was a bit of a surprise, that someone
    would even take that risk," he said.
    But the bigger question for some
    sceptical social media users was if the
    entire incident was a "publicity stunt".
    "If I had some crazy laptop design that I
    wanted to go viral, I'd claim it had been
    stolen for free exposure," suggested
    Facebook user Jon Macleod.
    But Mr Prince dismissed this idea.
    "Considering how much publicity this
    product already had gotten before the
    convention even started, everyone was
    already talking and writing about it," he
    said.
    "To me, it doesn't seem like Razer would
    need that much more publicity."
    so whats your say true or publicity stunt.

    I don't think they can actually do that considering the fact that they got more publicity both online and offline
