    @bramvanvliet. Thanks for the tip. I've run into the following snag though.

    (With blender installed and following your post)

    @cakalapati I am at work right now!
    Tonight I will post my /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf here so we can compare it.

    I will also post the output of the other commands.

    Re: XPS One 27 / 2710 compatibility

    @cakalapati,

    Did you use a second hard drive slot or purchase a mSata SSD Drive? The online manuals aren't very good? i was hoping to do an SSD and RAM upgrades after I bought one.

    Love the thread, Been dying for an AiO for years. 2560x1600 would be sweet but i don't think i can wait that long.

    Re: XPS One 27 / 2710 compatibility

    I opened mine (googling the service manual will show you how to open the unit) and simply replaced the existing SATA Hard Drive with an Intel SSD hard drive. I didn't want to mess with mSata (I needed things to just work). The memory upgrades are relatively straight forward too.

    Re: XPS One 27 / 2710 compatibility

    Hi, today I bought this nice piece of hardware. I didn't get chance to windows boot up first time
    I installed latest Ubuntu 12.10 Beta 2 abd try install bumblee. Seems to works. But seems to nvidia card is always on. There is some problem with bbswitch module.

    from syslog:
    Code:
    bumblebeed[1090]: Unable to disable discrete card.
    1) check the status
    Code:
    root@xps:# optirun --status
    Bumblebee status:  Ready (3.0.1). X inactive. Discrete video card is on.
    2) trying disable card
    Code:
    root@xps:# tee /proc/acpi/bbswitch <<<OFF
    3) syslog:
    Code:
    bbswitch: disabling discrete graphics
    Oct 17 21:45:05 afro-xps-one-27 kernel: [ 4757.253278] bbswitch: Result of Optimus _DSM call: 00000019
    Oct 17 21:45:05 afro-xps-one-27 kernel: [ 4757.253326] pci 0000:01:00.0: power state changed by ACPI to D3
    What is your experience?

    my nvidia driver: 304.43
    I check GPU temperature and always around 60 degree
    Code:
    optirun nvidia-settings -c :8
    in GPU 0 - (GeForce GT 640M) -> Thermal Settings -> Temperature

    I've confirmed this bug. No sound after resume. If you need me to run any additional tests to help diagnose the problem, let me know.

    Re: XPS One 27 / 2710 compatibility

    Is there a way to just permanently use the NVidia card? I want to use it all the time so my compiz desktop is fully accelerated.

    Does the touchscreen function properly under linux? Also, do you use the 32 bit or 64-AMD bit OS? I assume the 32bit?
