So I want to install Ubuntu on my new laptop, a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p. It's a great laptop, pre-loaded with all the latest cool stuff like Windows 8 and UEFI and everything. Obviously, this is al nice but now I am wondering how hard it is to install Ubuntu on this machine.
As you may know, Ubuntu + UEFI don't really play well with each other. Above that, this system is equipped with a Nvidia GTX 755 together with the Intel GPU on the processor together with Nvidia's "Optimus" technology (which basically switches between the internal and Nvidia card depending on load). Now I heard this also doesn't always work on Linux.
So basically, I am wondering if other people own this laptop and have successfully installed Ubuntu on this. Also, how well does this Optimus thing work with Ubuntu? I hope someone can answer this for me!
EDIT: I just found out about Bumblebee which seems to be a possible solution.. anyone has experience with that?
