Hello Benjamin,

Depending on your ultrabook, you may have only SSD drives, so swapcache
won't be useful.
Also, I'm not sure intel graphics are working very well on DragonFly.. I
think you may encounter a lot of troubles with an ultrabook, they are often
built using latests devices (wifi, bluetooth, storage).

You could be able to use it, at least with vesa and ethernet I think.
