Take a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee
This make it usable but not perhaps as seamlessly as it would be in Windows. The work is
only pretty recent so I expect it will get better.
I'm using it on a Dell XPS 15z running Kubuntu 11.4 and it seems to work OK. I had to
muck around a bit to get the enablecard and disablecard scripts to work correctly.
There's a lot of laptops that are better supported than the Dell.
