    Asus UL80Vt-A1 Graphics and Ubuntu

    Hi,

    I'm thinking about buying the laptop here: Asus UL80Vt-A1. It uses a combination of integrated graphics (Intel GMA 4500MHD) and discrete graphics (NVIDIA GeForce G210M) which can be switched between if it's on battery power or plugged in.

    I want to make sure that it won't have any problems if I want to install Ubuntu on it.

    Anyone have experience with this sort of laptop?

    Thanks.

    I did find this, but it looks rather.. complicated and near the end of the thread, it looks like it doesn't work. (?)
