Default Re: No Optimus support means NO Nvidia at all or no dynamic switching?

Never again an nVidia card. I'll also discourage anyone from getting one too... What's the point of spending the money if you can't actually use it? Yep, it's as simple as that.
Too bad for them, they won't see my money any time soon. I'll just spend them on some other product with better (well, existent...) Linux support.
There's no BIOS option.

You would've better spent your money on a 6770M in the new HP dv6t SE/QE.
