Should be voted based on the price compared to the original retail price, not based on the fact that there’s no dedicated gpu.. if you’re buying something this small and light I doubt you’d be doing 3d work or gaming on it.
As far as I can see, you're relying on integrated Intel graphics as, unlike Apple laptops which are more expensive still, there are no Thunderbolt 3 ports, not even one, if you wanted to use an enclosure and graphics card at home. Also, no USB-C 3.1. I'm really not crazy about limited conceivability and dongles with expensive laptops. Still, like Apple, the screens and aesthetics are really appealing, I think, and any money saved is good news, deal wise.
Seems like a lot of money for not all that good of a spec. There is gaming laptops at this price and while not everyone plays games the GPU does come in handy for many other reasons.
