So, right now I am looking to buy an ultrabook, but the problem is I want a dedicated/discrete GPU with it. I'm looking for a 13" laptop with at least a 1080p HD resolution and a Core i7-8550U with 8GB RAM (preferrably 16GB). And of course, the dGPU. I really like the Dell XPS 13, but the problem is that it doesn't have a Dedicated GPU and while I could use eGPU, I would sorta rather not. I just plan to do productivity and light gaming. So maybe a MX150, 940MX, or 1050? By the way my price range is under $1500. :)

If you want a decent dedicated GPU (GTX 1050 and up), search for portable gaming laptop.
You will have to go with a 14" or larger screen, since laptops with dedicated GPU needs some cooling that might fit in a small laptop.

I considered it before, but I think a dGPU inside my laptop would be better suitable for me.

14" might be a bit too large so are there any laptops that are 13" with something like a MX150 or 940MX?
