This is a steal. In for one. Been waiting for a touchscreen + 13 inch win 8 laptop for a good price for awhile... Add to that i5. All of you waiting for a friggin 1080p display with i7 and a super webcam and a 20 hr battery at 2 pounds and under 400 can keep waiting, you are looking for something that isnt even close to existing <500 on a 14 inch touchscreen with i5 is awesome. Friggin Noobs. Good catch OP.
good points..pushed me to pull the trigger after waiting for a ultrabook deal.

Bought one, don't know why, but I felt better to buy it now, and return it if I get buyers remorse. I'm really nervous to find touchscreen windows 8 isn't what i'm expecting.

Who gives about the webcam. As for the battery, though it is a 3 cell, they're advertising a 5 hour battery life. Which is plenty, especially at $499.
It's not a 5 hour run-time battery. It's a 5 hour standby battery or on super low settings. No Windows 7 laptop with just a 3 cell can run 5 hours without some powering off.

Need more 411 on this! I have searched to no avail! How many USB 3 or 2? How many USB ports? This seems like a good deal!

Hardware, Including Computers and Xbox (excluding RAM)

Returns and exchanges of computers, computer hardware items (including mice, keyboards, and printers), and other hardware items (including Xbox 360 consoles and controllers, Zune players, and accessories), will be honored for thirty (30) days from the date of purchase, provided the item has not been opened or altered from its original state and does not show wear or damage.
so no return at all if it's opened?

Items Must be Returned to Same Microsoft Store Where Purchased

- Items ordered from the Microsoft Online Store can only be returned or exchanged at the Microsoft Online Store.
- Items purchased at a Microsoft Retail Store location can only be returned or exchanged at a Microsoft Retail Store location.

In for 1 as well but I may call back to cancel tomorrow. It seems it CAN NOT be returned in a Retail Store location. Anyone knows if a pre-paid return label is included from MS Online Store purchase? Or we will have to pay for the return shipping.

Battery 44 Whrs Polymer Battery
Please understand the number of cells is also related to peak power needed not just runtime. It is better to have one big cell if you can get away with the limited max current/voltage.

Also I thought W8 had battery improvements (tickles clock, etc)
