Hello!

I have tried Linux Mint with the i5 version of K55VM and everything worked even the card reader. There is a big problem concerning the dual video graphics solution however. Althugh I've managed to install intel driver for 3rd generation processors with embbeded graphics, the driver only works/cooperates with the “nouveau” driver version of nvidia card. No nvidia official driver supports this solution. Beside of that the nvidia card seemed to be always on as the OS produces a lot and I really mean a lot of heat during normal usage. That desn't happen on windows with the notebook being always cool during normal operation. That is a big concern when planning using Linux on these machines. I have tried to find out more on internet, but noone seemed to have solved the problem with temperature during normal operation.
