The Consumer Technology Association‘s spokeswoman confirmed that two laptops had found to be stolen from CES as said by the Razer.

Razer A Gaming Community
Razer was started by Min-Liang Tan, a Singaporean entrepreneur with headquarters located in California.
Among the gaming, community Razer enjoys a cult status. The gamers from all around the world have expressed their excitement about the Project Valerie, a device from the part of the firm.
Jason Vicencio said that Razer has always found a way to outclass itself from other brands without any offence caused to people those who like other products.
Artie Derilo commented that the device was a dream come true for every gamer on the go without having to cram graphics and line of vision into just one screen.
Earlier, Marvin England joked that he would love to open up the laptop on an aeroplane while sitting in the middle seat.
Controversially Facebook users like Malachy Hamilton questioned about its design and what to do with the three screens when laptop itself was meant for its portability regarding work and gaming.
However, the Project Valerie was still a prototype by Razer, and there have no talks yet mentioning about the possible release date or its price.
A Publicity Stunt?
A gaming reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Todd Prince who was also present at the event, told the theft was a surprise given the tight security of CES tech show.
He said that there were cameras fixed all over the place and possibility that someone would even take that risk and was able to get the laptop out was found to be a surprise.
But some sceptical social media user’s biggest question was if the entire incident was made as a “publicity stunt“.
Facebook user Jon Macleod suggested that if he had got some crazy laptop design that he wanted to go viral, then he would claim it had been stolen for free exposure.
However, Mr Prince dismissed this idea on considering the publicity this product has already gained before the convention to get started, and everyone was talking and writing about it already, he added.
Mr Prince also mentioned that it doesn’t seem like Razer would require much more publicity.
