I have just purchased a Acer 3830TG, the timeline X series.
To my surprise I found out that there is no first-party support for nvidia optimus for linux. Bumblebee works great, but the battery life from the graphics card always running is not so great.
I don't use linux for games so i don't really need the graphics card on, I have Windows for that.
In my bios, I have the ability to change my graphics mode from switchable to integrated.
If I do this, reinstall ubuntu, what will happen? Will my nvidia card just turn off? Will everything work properly, as if i'm not running an optimus laptop? Is this recommended as opposed to dealing with bumblebee?
What is the best thing I could do?
