I want to buy a laptop for university and I plan to use it for slides, lessons, lite 1080p video/photo editing, lite coding and modelling. MY budget is up to 1500 usd

Lenovo has a few AMD 4000 series model out now but you have to be careful because some of them don't have RAM slot and all soldered to the board like a MacBook. Also, some that have RAM slot but you only have one slot and that locks you into single channel mode only. Asus TUF got poor thermal performance so avoid that one.

Assuming the following website is correct, it looks like the Lenovo T14 can be upgraded by the user after purchase. So you can spec a 8GB with 128GB of RAM, go buy more RAM and bigger SSD drive and do the upgrade for way cheaper than factory price.
