I've been wanting this laptop for a while now and just found out, on a laptop dedicated forum, that the series 7 780Z5E, with touchscreen capabilities is going to be sold at best buy on the 17th this month for around $1,200. Can someone confirm this?

I had the exact same question - saw the model NP780Z5E listed for sale last night on bestbuy.com for $899. I thought the listing had to be a flaw because it was supposedly the fabled new CHRONOS model and because the price was MUCH lower than I thought it would be. So I called the local BB this morning (2/16/13) and confirmed that the model is available and for the aforementioned price. Sucka likes his gadgets so I picked it up this morning and have been playing around with it since. The laptop is crazy smooth.
FYI the specific model I purchased is the Series 7 CHRONOS 15.6"" - NP780Z5E-S01UB.

$899 model I saw that is for sale on Bestbuy.com is NP700Z5C which is the previous series 7 Chronos.
Does it come with a touchscreen panel? NP780Z5E comes with a touch screen panel.

Hi all - I thought the same thing when I saw the original bestbuy listing last night. So my previous post needs clarification. The listing on bestbuy.com listed the OLD model number but showed features of the new CHRONOS model. That is why I called - they confirmed it was the new chronos model but I still didnt fully believe them so I went to the store to verify. Lo and behold it was the new model and I did in fact purchase for $899. The laptop I purchased has the model number detailed in my prev post on the actual box. Also, the laptop comes with windows 8 64-bit (that's what initially piqued my interest when I saw the bestbuy post last night), 15.6" screen, touch screen, I repeat touch screen WHICH IS MONEY, 1 tb, 8gb, intel core i7. I will say that the 14" model was NOT in the store because I searched high and low for it. .
I'm not sure if every store in the country has the specific model I purchased - FYI I live in northern Jersey.
Here's the link that started it all.
