now, why do these use standard ulv chips, while the official intel ones have hd 5000 equipped models?
Most likely because at the time when they started making these, Intel didn't ship any other Haswell chips? I'm sure we'll see more SKU's in the future, least not some cheaper AMD based ones which they demoed back at Computex.

I could see this going off like a high-explosive grenade, firing shrapnel through the monitor at your face.

Zotac has been serving my needs for OE/XBMC very well, but depending on the price, I just might have to try this out.
