[ Optimus notes snipped ]

I asked several retailers about machines that could be switched in the
BIOS with much the same result as you. I bought a laptop with a radeon
instead. I haven't yet succeeded in getting fglrx modules working
though, so I can't yet say that there's any winning decision here.

Just gotta point out here, that's not your problem. If it was offered to
you in good faith at a price that isn't immediately obviously a mistake
of some kind, they have to honour that offer. If you still want the
laptop and have some documentation of the price you were offered, press
them on it.
