Seems like a good deal for a touch screen. Tier1 offer a 6 month warranty aswell.

Just a word of warning on the Samsung 5 series. Tons of issues with Express cache and the integrated SSD. It's also an absolute pain in the **** to reinstall Windows as the SSD interferes with the install. Mine kept blue screening whenever I enabled express cache so I got rid of it.

If you do reinstall Windows the only way to do it is this:

Got the i5 version of this laptop for a bit more than this, don't know about the windows 8 install issue but a issue I have is that the CPU is down clocked to 700 something MHz and I can't figure out how to let it use the full power. Tried changing to maximum power mode in battery settings but it doesn't increase as far as I can see.

In the bios, change CPU settings

Tempted by this - but only 6 months warranty on this from the Tier1online website.
