Edit i also find it odd that nvidia does not directly support optimus yet its blatantly written on their website that nvidia optimus is 'pure pwnage'

They just don't want to write drivers that work with intel drivers/hardware. Since there are quite a few ways to implement multiple GPUs (mux, muxless, manual, software, etc), they would have to do extensive testing, and they don't have the resources or time for that.

I found that NVidias Verde drivers [current beta 280.19] do work with the m14x I have and according to my reading, some of the m17x models also. Installing them now.

These work for optimus powered notebooks. Updated to NVidias latest~

Count me in with my little beast m11x r3.

Originally had a m11x r1 but after some technical stuff ups on Dell's part, got given a brand new i5 r3 as a replacement!

Pic attached to prove it
