I've been using quite a number of Thinkpads and among them is a T520 
with optimus hybrid graphics. With this model the docking station with 
external monitors or an additional monitor without docking station never 
worked exept with MS Windows. This was a real PITA for me...

So if I had the choice I would never ever buy an optimus system again.
