Singtel is HP Probook 440 (from their Whatsapp Bot), MBP
M1 is Dell 3410 (one month ago, not sure if got refresh), MBP.
Axiom is Surface Laptop 3.
Lenovo.com is Thinkbook or Ideapad.

The other vendors will be offering different brands of laptops, fitting the specification of PSG grants. Some will just tell you, you will be given based on stock availability. So not sure if can choose.

So far models I've seen besides above are Thinkpad L13, Thinkpad E14, Thinkbook 14, Thinkbook 13s, Asuspro P1440, Asus expertbook P2, Lenovo HP Probook 430.

For list of vendors supporting PSG Grant, go to this IMDA site and do a search for laptop keyword to find vendors offering the laptop bundle.
Heard from one of the vendor that the laptop will be engraved with the IMA logo. Is that true?

The T14 is with TN panel screen with only 220 nits.
At least the E14 is with IPS screen.

Okay, look like it's a turn off, don't know can upgrade or not.
What's the pt of gfc with such lousy screen.

L13 is 13.3 FHD IPS AG 250Nits
I think I will probably get this since I'm also comfortable with the size.

Yeah. 220nits is horrible. Even more so TN panel. And still need to top up 400.

I’m contemplating if I want to mix and match the E14 and Thinkbook 14 from another vendor with upgrade to 16gb ram.

Government specs clearly say at least intel i5. Intel being the definitive word here. So vendors are obliging with it.
So you don’t even see AMD variants of laptops being offered, let alone new Apple silicon chips.
You can try emailing all the vendors from the imda link I’ve posted in a reply earlier and see if any willing to offer for you.

Think IMDA usually says 4-6 weeks to be safe but now generally around 2 weeks. Am sure there will be an influx of applicants cause ending soon le

Brand/model?
Standard specs for psg. 65w battery is better than most.
