A few days ago, two of Razer’s three-screen laptops were stolen from the company’s booth at CES. It now appears those prototype devices are up for sale on a Chinese ecommerce site.

Writers at Engadget China and Wccftech spotted listings for the gaming rig on the popular Chinese retail site Taobao. It appears the incredibly powerful machines are being sold illegally for approximately $21,742, a few thousand short of the amount being offered by Razer for information on their whereabouts.

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan expressed in a Facebook post just how much it means for the company to get the laptops back.

Razer’s three-screen laptop was a refreshing change from the typical showings at CES, which was filled with dozens of indistinguishable tech all performing just about the same functions. And for that, and the good of the industry, we sincerely hope the company finds a way to get its devices back.
