RedFox SlimTouch WBST14 Haswell-powered Ultrabook

Along with other Haswell-powered devices we’ve seen during the 4th Gen Intel Core processor launch a couple of days ago, REDFOX was also there to showcase their SlimTouch WBST14 Ultrabook.

The REDFOX SlimTouch WBST14 sports a 14-inch full HD display, Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U CPU, Intel HD Graphics 4400, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, and a 3,900mAh battery.

At first glance, the SlimTouch’s body looks like it’s made of aluminum but it’s actually plastic. Although it looks okay in terms of aesthetics, the grey color makes it look “old-fashioned”. It also felt like it took inspiration from another ultrabook but I just can’t put my finger on which one.

We wanted to tinker with the SlimTouch when it was on display but unfortunately it’s a dummy unit and doesn’t even turn on. Also there was no rep during the time we were playing with it so we weren’t able to get any info regarding pricing and availability.

      Author is correct.

      “and doesn’t even turn on”

      Doesn’t/Shouldn’t/Wouldn’t etc = Negative Contractions

      Negative contractions are, when used with a verb, the base/present form of the verb is used.

      Also, if you think about it, ang baho pakinggan ng sentence kung “turned on” yung ginamit.

      ;)

    Kmusta quality ng red fox?

    • Matthew Ames says:

      RedFox laptops usually have a decent build quality. As for the price, sometimes they’re a bit expensive or at almost the same price range as well-known laptop brands.

    20mm thick pero plastic? baka pag nilagay mo sa bagpack mo yan pag kuha mo nag bend na. mehehe

  9. Mike M says:

    Redfox brand is a decent. If you should know, Redfox, as a motherboard, is supplied by both Biostar and Gigabyte as an OEM. I’m guessing this unit is a Gigabyte OEM from their laptop line up.

    Oh, and also, these laptops, whether it is HP, Dell, Lenovo, Apple, Asus etc, most of them also use Foxconn as their motherboard manufacturer of their laptops, which is another brand that pinoys are saying “yuck”. :P

    Although service is actually decent vs. branded (yes, their service is pretty decent), price-wise, they’re around “branded” pricing, sometimes higher or lower.

    I know this site presents quality dependent posts and additional stuff, is there any other web site which presents these kinds
    of information in quality?

  12. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I
    clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr…
