    I want to buy a laptop that doesn't use AMD switchable or Nvidia optimus and only use Nvidia all the time. If i buy the macbook pro classic version in bootcamp, would I able to use Nvdia only?

    Too bad because the Samsung series 7 seems to be a nice choice, if only i can disable optimus.

    Boot Camp doesn't use the IGP at all; Apple locked it to only use the dGPU

    Haha, I think apple has intentionally doing that to make windows less appealing to us, but that's actually a feature for me. I cannot believe it's actually hard to find a laptop nowadays without optimus or switchable, or at least give us the option to disable it! Anyways, thanks for the quick response!
