That advert says the laptop has Optimus technology which is Nvidia speak 
for it also having integrated graphics, Intel in this case I would assume.

To the best of my knowledge Nvidia do not currently support Optimus on 
Linux. Is is possible to disable the Intel onboard graphics? I don't 
have any first hand experience of these products.

You should probably ask on the nvidia linux forums if you require more 
detailed help, or start by googling "nvidia optimus linux" and see what 
comes up.
