I've been working with a Lenovo model T450 notebook a few times and I like the keyboard.

When looking at current 15" Lenovo models, you have the T560, E560 and L560, the T560 is a bit over budget so I was wondering whether the E560 or L560 are fitted with the same keyboard as the T560/T450, besides the additional numeric keypad of course.

Looking at the L560, pictures and specs, it looks like it has a decent keyboard. It wears the ThinkPad name which has always applied to keyboards. It is 5 pounds (so heavy) and thus does not need the material engineered for light weight (and therefore more costly).

I have an X1 Carbon (most assuredly NOT a budget machine) and it is very light (2.6 pounds) and has a fine keyboard.

Thanks John, it's meant for at home so weight isn't a big issue. I know of the Carbon, yes that's even better if budget isn't an issue.

I was hoping for someone with experience with an L or E device as I can't try one, they're only available online for me.

I think you will find (based on some looking around by me) that the keyboards are very nice. There is some variation between models but anything wearing ThinkPad will have a decent keyboard.

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.
