I'm checking which HP EliteBook (among 8740w,8760w) gives the possibility to switch off Optimus in the BIOS (need it to simplify CUDA development under Ubuntu). Or even better, is there a list of the laptops allowing this switch off? Soon I'll buy a laptop, so I'd like to have this info. I'm aware of the existence of Bumblebee, but if I can make my life easier..

Thank you for the help!

Martina

p.s. Right now, I'm just sure that Lenovo ThinkPad does have this switch-off

So, what (Optimus-wise on EliteBooks) did you discover after buying it? – K3---rnc Sep 6 '15 at 18:15
