This laptop uses the Optimus feature which combines the NVIDIA discrete graphics with the Intel graphics on the processor. You can get this setup working with the Bumblebee project.
HDMI doesn't work with Bumblebee installed, you can run hdmi under “vblank_mode=8 optirun some-aplication” (thanks to Cabezon for the tip).
The Asus N46VJ works fairly well with Linux.
