I heard that ThinkPads are really compatible with GNU/Linux. But is Debian good choice for these laptops?
Mm, that’s maybe a little subjective … it should work quite happily, although Ubuntu might work ‘better’ … a better question might be; is it a good choice for the prospective user?

Okay. Is Fedora good for ThinkPads?
I found this which may help…
but as MP suggests, Linux distros are quite varied and the reasons I like “X”, is the reason somebody else does not. If you’re looking for a distro, then it also depends on the use case - do you want stability or bleeding edge features? desktop or server? what Support do you expect? and any hardware compatibility considerations, etc…
I’ll add a link to DistoWatch too, which lists all distros and provides details about each.
Not sure if this is helpful----- I am running Ubuntu 18.04 on a Thinkpad T500 with 2GB RAM and 500GB SSD, and it’s absolutely fine.
