My particular model is Asus N82JV-VX038V but the contents of the page should remain valid for every N82JV model.
Works out of the box.

This laptop sports two gpus. The Intel GMA HD (Core ix integrated) and the Nvidia Geforce GT 335M, with the ability to switch granted by Nvidia Optimus technology.
No problems detected. VGA out and HDMI working.
The official proprietary Nvidia drivers for linux do not support Nvidia Optimus yet.
Switching / Using Nvidia card
While it still isn't possible to switch in the manner that Optimus is supposed to switch, in order to make use of the dedicated graphic card you need to use Bumblebee. In short, it is possible to run a specific program with Nvidia, while the rest of the system is relying on the Intel card.
Disabling the Nvidia card
There's more than one method to do this. Namely with vgaswitcheroo (not working reliably yet with these cards) and acpi_call (AUR), which is recommended.
What it is: A kernel module that enables you to call parameterless ACPI methods by writing the method name to /proc/acpi/call, e.g. to turn off discrete graphics card in a dual graphics environment (like NVIDIA Optimus).
git clone http://github.com/mkottman/acpi_call.git cd acpi_call make sudo insmod acpi_call.ko ./test_off.sh
# turn off discrete graphics card echo '\_SB.PCI0.PEG1.GFX0.DOFF' > /proc/acpi/call # turn it back on echo '\_SB.PCI0.PEG1.GFX0.DON' > /proc/acpi/call
