This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
Answering my own question, I've got the info from a guy who owns this laptop:
All Samsung Series 7 notebooks use an ATI Radeon HD 6xxx series GPU. The drivers for these are supported on Linux, and you should have no issues with running a second monitor from it. The cards are also supported by the open source
Some of these are Hybrid graphics, so you can switch between the integrated and dedicated. Intel graphics should provide no issues.
