Last year’s Lenovo ThinkPad T490s won our "Editor’s Choice Award“. The successor, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s with Comet Lake-based Intel CPUs is just as good.

I'll have a look...
Not a problem at all chap, better late than never ey! Thanks for the well informed response yet again. Will def look in to whether they have a spare SODIMM slot. I have a feeling they won’t based on the general consensus over on r/Thinkpad being that the RAM is not upgradable. Coincidently I’ve had my eyes on a Gen 2 L13 with the 11th gen i5 for £499, mulled over it too long and someone nabbed it this afternoon. You snooze you lose ey Also, if similar in price, would you favour the E14 Gen 2 or T14 Gen 1? I’ve noticed a few odd listings that crop up and go quite quickly which seem to be surplus corporate stock with majority of the 36 month warranty and they’ve gone for significantly less than RRP. Considering bumping up to £600-650 (less for the E14) to grab one of the above perhaps. I’m also pretty certain the RAM on those is upgradable.
Apologies for not getting back sooner, mods took my account offline for 5 days (annoyed) . The L series on ebay, I spotted one that was still within warranty with the 10th gen i5. It appears the press don't have much praise or slander to throw at the L13 or 14 apart from the screen's lack of va-va-voom. It's colour accuracy isn't great, the RGB spread/coverage is sub 60%. It's a 1080p panel. If that doesn't bother you, the L13 or L14 I saw on eBay a couple of days ago for £499 seems to be plentiful pc for your money. Just double check what the maximum memory the machine(s) can handle and whether they have a spare SODIMM slot.
Have been looking predominantly on eBay and L13 and L14 have caught my eye, mainly due to (seemingly) being even more compact than the T series you mentioned. What are your thoughts on the L series (with 10th gen i5 processor)?
