Both. At least on the models I have disassembled (two x60 and one x40) the motherboard is too flexible/thin and the components and cheap. The thinkpad's case and keyboard are good, though, and it just works very stable. I understand why people on imageboards like thinkpads, although I think it's overrated.
As a opinion, I wouldn't buy Intel hardware in these days. If OP just wants to browse, play videos, do some text/image editting, then ARM hardware is better right now and uses mush less battery.
