Re: GeForce GT 750M

I will chime in here and say that I have the Optimus setup, and no BIOS switch to disable the Intel card and wanted nVidia only. I followed the Wiki linked above and had problems myself. What the issue was is that I had to REMOVE the Intel driver stuff. Yes -- REMOVE it. No matter what I had in my xorg.conf, the machine would hit that Intel card, load the driver, then freak out when X wanted the nVidia one.

I'm not on my Linux box ATM (I'm at work and they have not seen fit to convert 14000 machines to Linux yet. Go figure!) or I would post my xorg.conf for you. Suffice it to say it is pretty much what's in the Wiki.

But again, REMOVING the Intel drivers was the fix for me.

Why? The reasons why Optimus has become hugely popular are: Heat, and power drain.

The Intel should be perfectly fine for "normal" usage. It is for *me*.

Re: GeForce GT 750M

I just don't like the "remember to run optirun", and just don't want the nVidia clutter. My laptop is used as a desktop replacement, and since I do a lot of 3D simulations, etc, I just prefer it on all the time.

But that's just me. I wouldn't have bought this laptop if I had paid more attention and realized that when it cam with an nVidia card, it was a Optimus setup and not "discreet".
