Your requirements are somewhat mutually exclusive.

You'd like a 1.4kg laptop. Which is fine and sensible. It's nicer not to have something big and heavy to lug around.

You'd like to play games like Rainbow 6. Again this is fine. But to play them with decently high graphical settings and frame rates you'd need a pretty decent graphics card. Laptops that come with graphics cards tend to be more the mobile workstation types, weighing over 2 kgs.

You could go for 2 laptops. Or a laptop and a desktop.

Would you always or almost always be wanting to play games at home?

Additional Comments:
As mentioned by Dunnig Kruger, you are not going to find a gaming capable 14" laptop weighing under 1.5kg. If you are willing to compromise for a slim bezel 15" machine, however, you can get something powerful enough to play triple A titles while still coming in under 2kg and 2cm thick, so still very thin and light.

For around £1500 you can find a number of laptops fitting this bill, just having a quick browse of my usual go-to site you can find multiple laptops with full fledged 1060 and 2060 GPUs.

That is not correct. Avoid Huawei because the US banned Huawei and all other American companies like Microsoft are not allowed to deal with it.

Shady stuff is done by all companies including facebook, etc.

add an extra inch and another hundred £ and you could go for a pretty high spec gaming laptop like msi gs65 or Razer blade. the battery life on the Razer is good
