In a statement on the official Razer Facebook page, Razer has announced that two of the Razer Blade prototypes were stolen from their San Francisco Research and Development lab. Razer has contacted the authorities, and is imploring anyone with information to contact them with any information at

Full Statement Below.

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 if you have any information.

Thank you for all your support.

    Why do I have a sinking feeling that Gizmodo will end up buying the stolen prototypes.

    Granted, it wouldn't quite be the same level of harm to Razer as to when the stolen iPhone was bought to apple.

    $3k for an outdated piece of hardware... these are likely 2 out of 3 units the company would have sold.

    Apple harmed by iPhone theft? Here I thought it was a marketing ploy.

    Really if they were so important, they should have used a security system with built in calling. IR Camera's are also a good deterrent. I'll bet they didn't even have n alarm system!

    Myself, I believe if we cut off a hand of a thief caught, then they would stop the fooking stealing.

    At my house in AZ, If I'm home the thief is dead. It just if he dies by shotgun or handgun that is question.

    Where I'm from, you'd likely get locked up for killing a thief, unless he also had a weapon and was looking to kill you.

    I'd just kill the intruder in my home and put a knife in his dead hand Only two witnesses, and one can't talk.

    would've made a pretty awesome laptop if the price is right, and *if* it had an optical drive... otherwise... MBP 15" is where i'm staying for my "all in one" needs...
