Maybe if you are able to unlock the BOS/UEFI and set the VGA Switching Policy to Static instead of Dynamic/Auto, you could choose which graphics card to enable. But I'm just guessing, no idea what kind of BIOS it has.

Looks like second m.2 slot can be used for wifi card and antenna cable located really close to this slot:

I'm just thinking that the Asus Zenbook UX305UA is much better and higher quality.

That would be perfect to dual boot: Windows 10 on one drive and OSX or Linux on the other.

The 67000HQ would work nice since it has better graphics

No such thing as 67000HQ, but ...

Huge differences between i5-6200U and i7-6700HQ. i5-6200U is TDP 15W (can be configured at 25W), where as i7-6700HQ is 45W (can be configured at 35W). I doubt the cooling system in this laptop is designed for the difference.

According to the latest update in http://bbs.pcbeta.com/viewthread-1708645-1-2.html (in Chinese, linked from Zhihu link posted earlier), there are problems with Wifi, Bluetooth and I2C trackpad.

As mentioned in earlier posts, the Wifi module may be replaced (details here http://bbs.pcbeta.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=1708645&page=2#pid46403387) or a Wifi USB dongle can be used. The OP used USB dongle for Bluetooth.

There is also no Apple driver support for I2C trackpad. The OP used VoodooI2C for now, but the caveat is that it is slow and multi-touch does not work at the moment.
