Please if anyone can give a good clear answer it would be very helpful to me.
My clear answer (coming from the experience of my new Asus U30Jc) is that you won't be able to use the nvidia card, only the intel chipset is working for me (ubuntu 10.04).

And that's really a shame because I bought this laptop hoping to be able to use CUDA under Linux ...
