    In general, to install it, it's fairly easy:
    1. Make sure system is up to date: apt update && apt dist-upgrade (then reboot)
    2. Download the driver from nvidia, make it executable and follow the instruction from the binary.

    However, Optimus makes complicated (great idea, bad implementation). You'll have to find debian guides on how to switch the nvidia on/off; there is another tool you need.

    In my personal experience, I'd avoid any laptop with an Optimus system.
