I think the Galago Pro from System 76 probably fits the bill. It's a 14",
but has everything else you wanted, I believe.

They do have their own open (not sure of license) boot... Firmware? Called
core boot... So no bios (uefi or otherwise). Plus side is its all open
(free) drivers and firmware and such, I guess.

I was considering getting one as my next work laptop but went with a dell
because I needed more compute in a smaller package than System 76 has
