The Future According to Red Fox

Wednesday, August 4, 2010
I think it came from the future. Well, not really. It may as well have, though.

The Red Fox Vengence Evo G502 boasts of AMD Phenom II X4 945 (3.0 GHz, 6 MB L3 Cache) processor, AMD 790G chipset, 4 GB (DDR3 1333 MHz) memory and 1 TB (SATA) hard drive. To the ordinary (and/or tech novice) consumer, its specs may seem like just a jumble of numbers and letters. I’m not a tech expert either, but even I know that a 4 GB memory and 1 TB hard drive is something to whistle about. It promises a lot of speed and it’s going to be a long, long time before you’ll have to delete anything on your computer. Add the sleek red and black design, and I’m half expecting the computer to turn into a robot and shout, “Autobots, transform!”

A little less Transformers-looking is the Wizbook W1020i.

It doesn’t sacrifice anything in terms of features, though. It has an Intel® Atom™ processor, 160 GB hard drive, 4-in-1 card reader, a built-in camera, and is 3G ready and Bluetooth-capable. See, even in this image-driven world, not everything has to be flashy to be indispensable.

The Red Fox PC that I’ve got my eye on, though, is a hybrid: the eVolve.

I guess you can say it’s half-PC and half-TV. The CPU is already built into the monitor, which makes this perfect for those who live in apartments where space is hard to come by. There’s even a remote control you can use to switch from PC mode to TV mode, and vice versa.

Evolve isn’t Red Fox’s only wave-of-the-future product. The WizLib is an e-book reader that has a Wi-fi option so you can connect to the internet. The Interactive Whiteboard, on the other hand, is the kind of product that every big (or even medium-sized) business should have. As the name suggests, it is a combination of a white board and a projector. It allows you to control the computer through the board itself via your finger or digital pen. There is even an application that allows you to save what is written on the board directly onto your computer. And finally, there’s the Boombox. It’s a media player that can convert cassettes and audio CDs into mp3s. I’m not sure how it does this, but color me curious. The 1 GB version of the Boombox can hold up to 280 songs.
