Just upgraded my Lenovo T440s notebook to Windows 11 pro from Windows 10 pro, had to use the Rufus tool since it is an unsupported machine, but seems to run Windows 11 pro just fine, and unless its just because I got it to run Windows 11, it actually seems to be faster which is a good thing, not that it was slow on windows 10... just seems improved. Question is do I need to use something like eset endpoint since it is actually an unsupported laptop or not?

Not really, Defender should work just as well on an unsupported device as it would on a supported on.

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October.

Hope you made an image of your 10 install just in case Microsoft decides to not maintain updates on unsupported machines as they have warned.
It's easier than backing up and starting over.
