You failed to mention the "Max-Q" cards, which are much more prevalent in the higher-end notebooks, but if you look at their value for money, they're borderline scammy.
You pay for the higher tier components, yet receive a GPU so gimped, it basically matches the lower tier equivalent. 2070 Max-Q is less than ~5% faster than 2060 Laptop (in most scenarios), but much more expensive. Same thing with 2080 Max-Q vs. 2070 Laptop.
Not really, you just need to ensure that the machine you're buying has the 90W variant. The 90W 2070 Max-Q can score up to 7500 on Time Spy Graphics, which is quite equivalent to some full 2070 laptop cards. Same for the 2080MQ.
