UHD (4K HDMI)
By jimdempseyatthecove29
My desktop has a SEIKI 39" 4K TV/Monitor attached via HDMI. I do not use this for games, just for gobs of desktop (e.g. so I can eliminate additional monitors). On the desktop it works great, except for an occasional 4-5 second black screen. Others have this problem, and this is background for my question below. I wanted to see  if Intel Software Development Platform Ultrabook HDMI could drive this Monitor (TV). The screen is recognized (Mfg. Name, model number, resolution, refresh rate). However, upon selecting the correct properties, the display momentarily displays nicely, but then shortly, the image gets skewed. It looks as if the horizontal sync (width) blanking interval is wrong. The vertical blanking interval may be wrong too, but I cannot tell. Is this a known problem? If not, is there a tweak program available that I can use to create a different profile. (One that works with the Intel integrated graphics controller inside the Haswell CPU of the UB). Jim Dempsey
Upgrading SSD in Intel Haswell developer Ultrabook
By Randall Arnold5
I have to say that, other than occasional power management quirks, I love the Intel developer Ultrabook.  I'm migrating to it as my go-to laptop and rarely fire up my beloved Lenovo W500 any more. But I filled the SSD up fast and need to upgrade.  So I got a Sandisk 256 GB SSD, hooked it up to an external drive adapter and set about migrating the existing SSD over to it. Or so I thought.  After spending around $100 on three different utilities, and trying numerous free ones, I cannot get a successful clone.  AOEMI Partition Assistant Pro did a good job with its Migration utility (although I was stunned at how slowly it ran), but even though everything was copied over, the new SSD does not show as bootable.  I am unable to find a utility that will resolve this.  I tried a migration tool from Paragon (http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/components/migrate-OS-to-SSD/ ) that was much faster than AOEMI's and no luck there either... even though Paragon swears on their website tha...
What Ultrabook are you using for development?
By Adrian Stevens7
Just curious if people are using Ultrabooks as their primary development machines.  If so, what make/model are you using and is there anything you like/dislike about it? I've personally been coding almost exclusively on my 14" Ivy Bridge powered Ultrabook but I'm ready for an upgrade. I'm finding the 4gigs of ram a little limiting, but otherwise I love working on a machine with a touchscreen and all of the new sensors built in.  I've got my eye on the HP Envy Touchsmart 14 with the QHD screen as a replacement.
Help with UBIV4 SDP Ultrabook
By Jason G.4
Hi All, I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction to get a problem fixed on my UBIV4 Ultrabook. The keyboard was damaged (by my cat...) and I was hoping to see if there was a way to get/buy a new one from Intel. But when I go into Premier support to submit a ticket, it tells me the platform is no longer covered by them and to contact my Intel rep for assistance. The problem is I don't know who my Intel rep is or where to go find that information. Does anybody know how I can find that out? Is there maybe someone from Intel that can help me get a new keyboard? Maybe even a part number that I can use to order it from another supplier. (I doubt it was custom built for this Ultrabook.) The platform is great and I continue to use it to develop Win 8 touch apps. It would be a shame to have to put it aside for something so silly as a $20 keyboard. TIA, Jason
