Had a long think about it. The only worry I have is 4th Gen Haswell CPU's overheating.

Know anything about 4xxxU series?like I5 4200U

The U at the end stands for "ultra-low-voltage," (17W). U-labeled parts are made for ultrabooks and other laptops that expect high battery life and its performance is reduced (its dual core). With that in mind I dont believe overheating is going to be such a problem, maybe with a more powerful quad core.
