I own a laptop Toshiba M645-S4050 which has dual video cards (Intel & Nvidia 310M) with Optimus technology. I have read multiple posts regarding the incompatibility of the current version of drivers and systems, but I would like to know if somebody has been able to get it to work with this specific model.
I see there exist guides for other brands as Sony, Asus and Dell (Alienware), but I can not find almost info for Toshiba.
Will be great if anybody can share their experiences with this issue.
The specifications for this model are
TOSHIBA SATELLITE M645-S4050
PROCESSOR: Intel Core I5-450M 2.40 GHz, 3MB Cache
MEMORY: 4 GB DDR3
HARD DISK: 500 MB SATA
CHIPSET: Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset
GRAPHICS: NVIDIA® GeForce® 310M with NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology
and Intel Integrated Graphics
DISPLAY: 14.0" @ 1366x768 px
NETWORKING: 10/100 Ethernet & Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N +
BATTERY: 12 cell/98Wh Lithium Ion battery pack

I am very happy with the performance of this laptop, but I have always been a happy user of Ubuntu, so I am willing to begin using the new 10.10 version, but I really don't want to spoil my setup with something does not work.
Anyway, any help will be appreciated.
