Razer’s Project Valerie laptop prototype made a splash at CES earlier this month. The computer has three displays, with two that can slide out when you need them or be packed away when you don’t.

It was one of the most unusual devices unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and apparently someone couldn’t wait for Razer to release Project Valerie as a real product that you can buy… because Razer’s CEO says that two prototype devices were stolen on the last day of the show. It seems like a Project Valerie unit was at least one of those devices.

Now it looks like the thief may be trying to sell the stolen computer via Chinese retail and auction site Taobao.

A post on the Chinese social networking site Weibo shows a picture of a Taobao listing for the laptop, but notes that nobody should try to buy the device, which has been reported.

The price was set at 150,000 RMB, or about $22,000 US.

It’s not entirely clear how the prototype was stolen. As you can see in my video from the show floor, Razer did have working prototypes on display at CES, but they were under glass and a Razer representative was nearby every time I walked by.
