http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi Decided to start a thread to list some of the laptops that have nvidia optimus in them and get it to run with Ubuntu (or other variants) with Bumblebee or Ironhide or other solutions that exist out there. Basically I'm curious about the Ubuntu laptop users' answers to the following questions: 1) What kind of laptops do you use and with what NVIDIA video card? How were you able to get Optimus to work (switching the discrete card off, using bumblebee/ironhide etc.)? 2) How can you determine if your laptop and graphics card is optimus enabled? 3) Would you recommend this laptop (Hardware)
