    Its extremely unlikely. There is zero point to having a desktop CPU if you want to run the system on battery. There also is no Optimus option for desktop chipsets as far as I'm aware. Also, regardless of what Intel tries to tell you, the Iris Pro can not compare to a discrete graphics solution.

    o_O what do you mean by Professional apps? Where do you read this? And how good is that "good enough"?

    Iris pro of skylake (GT4e) with 128mb eDRAM cache and double the units of which braodwell's GT3e doesnt have.
    That combined with DX12 (Intel's Mantle ?) should make 1080p gaming with medium detauls possible.

    In the era of TB3, eGPU is always an options. now imagine a 13" P75xDM with an eGPU
    Clevo should keep pushing the envelop and take the opportunity that is TB3 and not make laptops like its 2010.
    or
    at the very least 15" P75xDM version with no dGPU as an option., It brings the price of entry significantly down

    That is a waste of development resources. 95% of the people buying such a machine are not going to be happy with IGP. And regardless of Intel's claims, their IGPs are still not strong enough for gaming. They have made the same claim with each generation since the HD 3000 and to say they fell flat on their face every time would be an understatement.

    That GPU comes with the Skylake H anyway, which is not what the desktops will have.

    If anything, lower cost P7x0DM series opens up new markets for Clevo. Mainstream is going to have to notice a laptop with desktop performance for same or lower price point (desktop cpus are cheaper).

    Folks who want the dGPU have to option to buy one anyway.

    Clevo would have to make a mux in order for the machine to have the capability of using both an iGPU and a dGPU, Optimus would not be possible, and you would still have to purchase a dGPU when you bought the machine. A low end dGPU isn't going to add much to the cost of the machine and the eDRAM on the CPU could actually be put towards the CPU power instead of the GPU. I really don't see Clevo releasing this machine with an iGPU.

    Just wondering if these sources of yours know anything about a refreshed P6xxSx series?

    There is nothing much new that's interesting for the P6xx series to use really, they had nice options already.

    No, but I could maybe see them releasing with a low-mid range GPU to lower the starting price and attract more professional users. Some professional applications don't rely on a GPU, so for those scenarios, I could see someone being attracted to a portable desktop processor, but not wanting to "waste" money on a high-end gaming GPU that they don't need. Maybe continue to offer the x70M as the standard option, but offer a downgrade to a x60M or x50M if you have no need for a more powerful GPU.
