Well I am a big fan of the Thinkpads or HP Elites and MicroDream will put a 1TB SSD in for £100 which pretty much cost price.

Lenovo 14″ ThinkPad T450s Ultrabook – HDF+ (1600×900) Core i5-5300U 8GB 1TB SSD WebCam WiFi Bluetooth USB 3.0 Windows 10 Pro

With an extended 3 years warranty £439

I hate the thought of anything without an SSD, but new I’d be looking at the Lenovo V15 Core i5 8GB 1TB HDD £445 direct from Lenovo. I’ve bought a fair few of the V series (they are aimed at entry level SMB), you must consider them sealed units. They are a lot lighter than a Thinkpad but obviously not as robust.
