    I thought the Sony SZ was the only laptop that had hybrid graphics (the ability to switch from a dedicated graphics card to integrated graphics to conserve battery life).

    But apparently the Alienware m15x has it too, calling it binaryGFX.

    Are there any other laptops that have this feature?
    Or any planned to have this feature?

    The new upcoming AMD mobile chipset, puma, will have an IGP, and if the manufacturer installs discrete graphics, then the Ichipset can switch between the two.

    on the desktop front; the new hybrid crossfire will allow the IGP to work with a radeon graphics card...we'll see if that comes to notebooks :D

    yes they will work together in notebooks
