Optimus is basically Nvidia's automatic switchable graphics technology. When you are surfing the Internet or writing a Word document it will use the IGP, and when your gaming it will use the discreet GPU. In the past if your laptop supported switchable graphics you had to do the switching manually but now Optimus does it for you automatically. At least that is what I've read about it, I don't actually own a laptop with Optimus.
