Few time ago I heard about some problems but I didn't care that much. Since I'm going to buy a notebook soon, right now I start caring
The question is simple, the notebook will have an integrated GPU (the one you can find into Sandy Bridge, it's called h3000 as far as I know) and also a dedicated GPU (nVidia). As far as I know there are not physical switches, therefore I guess that the dedicated one starts computing when the integrated one is not enough.
So, few time ago I heard that there were some problems because you couldn't stop one of the two and they were both running. And as you may imagine, battery goes down down down
Do you know the current situation? I won't play games in Linux, however I may watch a full HD movie, therefore even the dedicated GPU may be needed. Is it possible to change between them in Mint?
