Is VESA an option for you until Haswell support comes up in FreeBSD? The
question is serious, because I'm on the way to install -HEAD in an Acer C720 
cromebook with Haswell too.

As well I do run (just for tests) Xorg with VESA on my current netbook
Acer D250 (which has an old Intel chip) and I do not note any
