Did anybody successfuly swiched form Intel  to AMD in HP AY503TX in any  linux distribution. Will i be able to get any on site assistance from some official HP guys (Not for free I'm ready to pay for that service). Or those who want to run linux on  mechine should not  purchase "HP-AY503TX" .

There is no official HP help for this to be had at any price. I do not have that laptop. I do dabble in Linux and all I can tell you is that switchable graphics has been a recurrent issue and your best bet is to get on the Linux boards and try to get help there. Switching distros does very little good as all are basically the same kernel and this is a problem at the kernel level. I would focus on Ubuntu as it is the most widely used and therefore has the most active support forums.

Providing support for windows and not providing any hep for linux it self revels that HP is not intersted in linux.
