Samsung Windows 8 Touch Laptop Series 5 Is Actually Affordable

Samsung is on a roll today, and just fresh off launching the Note II, they've got their new Series 5 Ultra Laptop that doesn't seem to look special because it's really catering for people who aren't looking for something out of the ordinary.
The Series 5 Ultra is pretty much the same computer as the existing Series 5—just now with a touch panel. Samsung has opted to give its mid-tier laptop touch powers instead of its flagship Series 9, we wonder why. But it makes sense to get regular people used to whole touchscreens with regular old computers these days.
The Series 5 has a 1366x768 display, 10-point capacitive touch, i3 and i5 Ivy Bridge processors, and 4GB of RAM. It has a 500GB HDD, with a 24GB SSD ExpressCache. The laptop weighs 3.83 pounds, which isn't too much heavier than the 3.35 of the old Series 5.
The Series 5 Ultra will cost between $800 USD and $850 USD in its two configurations.
