All versions including i9HK should be allowed without dGPU, the main advantages are that you have the whole dissipation system for your CPU so you can maintain better frequencies for longer, you also increase the battery life, you save the cost of the dGPU and you avoid problems in Linux.

That Intel included Iris Pro X80 again would be a great relief but I doubt it.

Office series

I am no allowed to post the link, but search for the Office series in Shenker laptops, either in or anywhere else. They are really clevo barebones, so they are available under different names all around. I was looking for the same configuration myself, and found this. The CPU is i7 7700T, which is between laptop and desktop in terms of performance. There is another 17'' office version, with i7 7700HQ. Once these get refreshed to 8th gen, intel, it would be a very nice option.

Heck, i'm Looking for a robust 13" laptop WITH a GPU which won't break the bank.  Any ideas?

So i bought Dell XPS 15 9570 that have Nvidia 1050Ti with Max-Q design, i7-8750H processor and 16GB or RAM and couldn't be more satisfied.. Although it is not the top tier of this year new XPS 15, it performance fabulous in any aspect of daily use.
So i don't see the point of buying laptop that fulfill requirements, without it's graphic card.

I'd love to buy one too. I don't play games or use software with GPU acceleration, and I'd really appreciate the extended battery life. Maybe Dell will reconsider.

I would love to have that, too. All my systems run on GNU/Linux with as much as free and open source software as possible. I won't buy a notebook with a NVidia GPU because there is no open source drivers in working conditions for NVidia. For AMD, the GPUs are wonderfully supported with open source drivers. What is means is that you put any recent GNU/Linux distro in it and everything magically works, no fussing around GPU proprietary drivers. But, it seems hard to find a fast CPU and any AMD GPU on notebooks.

So, a good intel CPU (8750H) with an Iris Pro GPU would be the ideal solution...But, Intel seems to dislike the Iris Pro Graphics, so we are stuck with HD 630. However, now the system builders won't sell it. I would buy it happy!

I have a very old Thinkpad X61 wich only has an integraded GPU from Intel. It works wonderfully today, because the supported is baked into the Linux kernel and the sorrounding free and open source drivers. If I were to depend on a GPU vendor to provide a proprietary driver for an old system, it would be useless.

So, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give us a 8750H notebook without a dedicated NVidia GPU. Or, at least, give us one that the user could deactivate the GPU without compromising the boot process and external monitor connections.

I'd definitely want one. My professional use case is app development at my day job, but I also would like to get rid of my desktop for good at home. I never need a gpu for my work, but having an eGPU at home for when I do have time to game would be perfect. The precision 7530 fits the bill but it's not nice enough looking for my tastes, and I'm skeptical of the battery life. It's tempting to get the new Macbook pro refresh instead, but the price is steep.

Are there any other vendors that have a power notebook without a dedicated GPU?
I doubt it. Most H, HK or HQ and even QM series processor equipped in a laptop usually comes with a dedicated graphics, even the entry level multimedia ones (like 940MX, GTX 950, MX150, GTX 1050). If you want just an integrated graphics then the U series processor is the choice.

what's the additional price of such dedicated GPU? NV 1050 isn't cheap as I guess?

For example, it would be great to see Asus Pro UX 550GD with i7 8750 and with only integrated intel GPU.

While some businesses would like to order the XPS 15 9570 with an Intel Core i7 or even an Intel Core i9 processor inside, but without dedicated graphics, Dell has no plans to offer such hardware configurations. The answer to this question comes from Frank Azor via Twitter, as usual.
