I think switchable nvidia graphics are simple enough to do.

Take a look at the ul30vt and related models from asus.

I think the 335M will run fine, however there's no way of switching between the two in Linux while the machine is running.

If alienware gives a BIOS option (I believe in Windows FN-F6 switches between the two) or the FN-F6 is hardwired via the BIOS then we should be fine.

However, if the only way to switch between the two is in software then it wouldn't make for a very good Linux machine. In some of the pictures posted there was one of the BIOS Screen (

I'd say give it awhile and keep an eye on what other people are doing with it once it comes out in March. Looks like the graphics are switchable in the bios, which means the graphics part shouldn't be an issue with Linux.

I'll be testing the latest Ubuntu, Back Track 4, and Gentoo on it. Didn't spend too much time on this, was more interested in getting the lighting controls to work. I figure in time, someone will get this rocking like a champ.

I'm guessing the nvidia screws up because it adds the nvidia line to the file. I experienced the exact same thing when switching the BIOS from DISCRETE to SWITCHABLE. I posted a comment to Wattos to see about Alien FX Lite for m11x, as soleblaze mentioned above. Looks like Dave Airlie has been working on creating a way to switch the graphics without rebooting.

I'm wondering if X will still pick up on that driver even if it's not in the conf file. It's a larger chasis than other computers, but they also added the home, page up, page down, and end keys on the rightmost row, causing the other keys to be slightly smaller. He calls this vga_switcheroo, which looks to be merged into the next kernel, 2.6.34.

I'd guess that this laptop will work fine in Linux.

I just ordered this laptop and I am very interested in getting it to run with linux.
