The E6520 I've got my eye on has a duff pixel(s?).  I'm not fussed by that at all, unless it is a sign that the screen is on its way out and this problem is going to spread?

Stuck pixels are quite common and rarely a sign of any impending failure. It's entirely possible it shipped from the factory like that.

A replacement FHD panel is about £50, so it may be worth considering an E6530 or a higher spec E6520 and replacing the panel.

I will also search for some Thinkpads....

I sent you an ebay link via PM. May be of interest.

Lenovo Thinkpad T or W series. Look on ebay for what you can afford.

I've used T-series or X-series for the last decade or so and they have had the shit beaten out of them and just will not die! Spare parts are cheap. I just upgraded the screen on my T440 to a full HD IPS one for £39 delivered to door for example.
100% Agreement on this !

I have several T models and they run perfectly all the time.
And my W520 runs CAD and EAD Software better than any large workstation I had with its two graphics adapters.

+1 for the Thinkpad T models.

I have got a refurbished T420 and it is still running fine after around 4 years, and never felt to switch to nvidia graphics while working on pcb's.

btw, I could't get a cable to connect my external monitor via HDMI cable, tried one cable from amazon and it didn't worked and returned.
