I want to buy Lenovo yoga 710. I am concerned about general compatibility of this laptop with Linux especially graphics card. It has two graphics card. One is integrated with Intel processor other is discrete Nvidia 940MX. On windows Nvidia switches off when it is not needed and activates when it is needed (optimus technology). Does it work same on Linux?

I can tell you about my experiences so far. I got a Acer Aspire V5 Nitro with an i5 and nvidia 940m. I'm using Fedora 25 with the default nouveau driver. Maybe that nouveau lacks in performance, but it handles dynamic switches very well. Mostly i have it off power saving, even hdmi is working.
