Default nVidia Optimus Questions

I'm looking at buying a new laptop and run Linux on it. I've heard that if you purchase a laptop with nVidia Optimus then the nVidia graphics chip will not work at all under Linux, but the Intel graphics chip will..So I shouldn't buy an nVidia Optimus laptop if I want to run an nVidia graphics chip under Linux, correct?

I want to run a low-mid range GPU on my laptop under Linux, but I'm having difficulty finding a low-mid range nVidia GPU in a laptop that will run under Linux (avoiding nVidia Optimus) So people who are looking to run low-mid range GPUs under Linux shouldn't buy nVidia laptops, correct? Or is there a list of laptops that don't have Optimus somewhere?

Let me know, thanks..
