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

You can't provide a "fix" for something that's not there physically. Also, Nvidia doesn't make laptops.

Expecting for companies to advertise what they don't support is... weird, to say the least. Should each box have stickers on it saying "No support in Linux", "No support in FreeBSD", "No support in Solaris", "No support for Haiku", etc, etc, etc?

That all said, look into Bumblebee.
