First of all hello. And thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
I am about to buy a new laptop and I have a few questions because I want to install Ubuntu 64Bit 14.04 on it.
The laptop in question has the following hardware:
Screen: 13.3" 1920 x 1080 Full High-Definition
CPU: 4rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 4700MQ ( 2.4GHz/3.4GHz, 4 Cores, 8 Threads, 6M Cache)
RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Dual-Channel (2x 8GB, Unbuffered, 1.5V, CL11)
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 765M 2GB GDDR5 (with optimus technology).
Wifi: INTEL N-6235 802.11B/G/N Wireless LAN + Bluetooth™ V4.0 + HS
3 Hard drives (2 that can be on raid0)
1 HDMI output Port
1 VGA output Port
3 USB 3.0 Ports
1 USB 2.0 Ports
1 RJ-45 LAN (10/100/1000Mbps)
The questions that I have are many on drivers and power efficiency using the GPU.
The board has optimus technology does Ubuntu have support to it? Can I turn of the NVidia GPU and use the intel one on the go? I found Bumblebee https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee but does it work with the GTX 765M?
If not is there a way to make linux use the intel GPU instead of the NVidia?
Does Ubuntu support the wifi board? Is it capable of using the bluetoooth 4.0?
Can I use the drives in raid0?
Can I use both VGA and HDMI outputs to connect to 2 displays at the same time?
Hope some one can answer this questions.
