Well, if you're just going for a laptop to browser web and watch videos, maybe go to a ARM laptop then. See ASUS Chromebook C201, it's supported by libreboot.
I would recommend you also anything that has a i.MX6 processor. It will run 1080p if using the right drivers and is cheap as fuck. See ODROID-C1.
Thinkpads are really mostly a meme, the mainboard quality is really bad, but I have a x40 and it's running continuously for many months now (no reboot) and works well enough. It's very cheap too. If you can't find/afford a C201, then check x40 or x60, they are not that bad.
