Thank you for the list!  You need to add a section at the top for models with 4-cores, TB3 and no dedicated graphics.  Maybe someone, somewhere at a manufacturer will notice how short this section is...

Saw the Razer Blade 14 and Dell XPS 15.  Both reasonably portable.  The GS63 is somewhat wider but similar.  The upcoming P51S looks like a possibility.  

The Dell XPS15 can be custom configured without dedicated GPU.  Unfortunately, Dell does not allow the option of the top CPU and higher memory on that version.

Someday when eGPU is more popular, one of the manufacturers will fill this niche.

   

what model without dgpu? i know only hp g3 studio Smile

It's the $999 USA spec custom configuration model.  Best CPU is i5-7300HQ (optional) with 8GB RAM:

Intel 620 is standard on this version, GTX1050 is optional

I think memory and hard drive could be upgraded manually if the i5-7300 is sufficient.

My mistake, I didn't actually try to use the configurator, I didn't notice it forced you to add the GTX1050 if you selected the optional $100 i5-7300, sorry!

Too bad for Dell 🙁  I would buy i7 version with FHD and Intel 620 graphics

Yeah, 4 core, thin (ultrabook), and not dedicated graphics, it should be the perfect combination... (apart from being "macOS friendly", as I want to keep in mac too).

But I haven't seen something that I like. The XPS 15", if had 4 lanes, is not too bad option...

Cheers guys

A good question, just if someone knows. There is any laptop (except mbp 15"2016) that  has TB3-CPU and not TB3-PCH?

you could consider a dell latitude 5570, 5480 or 5580 with a x4 tb3 and i7-6820hq+930/i7-7820hq+940
