Samsung NP-530U4C-S06PH Series 5 Ultrabook

I could've waited until more Haswell powered laptops came out, unfortunately, my laptop, code name:green monster, is dying on me. Freezing for 30 minutes is not funny. With the right budget set, and specification in mind, I went and looked for the replacement. I checked the list price on the online shops first, but would never consider into buying it online, nor having it delivered. I still like store hopping when it comes to buying electronic items. I get to test it on the spot and checkout more options. Online stores only let you see a fraction of whats available in their inventory, but it is a good way to see the current price and the product specification so that when you do go to the physical store, you won't sound like a moron, or look completely clueless. The worse part about laptop shopping without previously researching first, is getting convinced by a sales representative to buy something completely opposite of what you're looking for or what you actually need, worse, for a higher price.

What I need:

1.)Decent processor Intel core i5-i7 3rd gen is fine, 4th gen is better, IF it's within my budget.
2.)Adequate RAM, 4-8gb
3.)Enough storage (500gb, 1tb HDD)
4.)Optical disk drive (DVD writer/reader)-yes, I still need it.
5.)13-15 inch screen (HD or Full HD, don't really matter), no touch screen
6.)Weighs about 2kg below.
7.)Windows 7 or 8
8.)Decent graphics

Well, this is what I ended up with:

Samsung NP-530U4C-S06PH Series 5 14-inch Core i7 Win8 Ultrabook

1.) Logitech M185 Wireless Mouse

2.) Sennheiser HD201 Hi-Fi Headphones

3.) 8gb usb 

4.) Samsung Laptop bag (in the box)
