switching on/off works on my N43SN (with i7 and GT550M, not exactly
the same specs, but close enough, I guess)
can run 3d apps with optirun64, but couldn't get vsync to work (crappy
experience for FPS games)
didn't try blender
I can try it out when my machine gets back from warranty service
(mainboard failure)

nice, powerful computer, can render any linux shooter in high quality,
BUT with tearing (no vsync I guess)
