The problem on laptop for usage as an hackintosh is to find a model which have a working dedicated GPU...

Most modern laptops uses optimus and that's not supported...

Btw if you are not into gaming you can take a look at the xiaomi mi notebook air!

So, the main problem should be the gpu, 

but is possible to disable the dedicated gpu and use intel hd?

the main objetive will be for music production (Use with logic Pro X)

and maybe some home video edition with final cut.

It's true, the price is very high. Need wait, many processors without Integrated Graphics is out. ;)
