Anyway, I'm looking at buying a P53, P73, or X1 Extreme gen2, except I want to be able to run OpenBSD on it occasionally without the dGPU enabled, via a BIOS setting. Do you guys know if any of those machines have that setting? I know they have hybrid and discrete only modes, but I'm looking for integrated only. OpenBSD just doesn't know how to handle Nvidia GPUs.
If not, and I know this is a thinkpad forum, but does anyone know of a non-thinkpad laptop that has that feature?
Thank you for any and all help.

Hybrid should do it.
Check out The Boardroom for Parts, Mods and Other Services.

1. As RBS suggested, in BIOS/Config/Display/Graphics Device they have only two options: Hybrid Graphics or Discrete Graphics.
Select Hybrid Graphics.
2. Then goto [Device_Manager]>>[Display_Adapter],
and then disable the graphics GPU there.
Would this work to disable your discrete graphics GPU within Windows 10 ?
(Please help to report back your findings; we are interested in this as well!)
