My TP Yoga 260 has an elantech Trackpoint & it's been momentarily freezing now and then. Passing pmouse.elantech_smbus=0 as a kernel parameter seems to be the fix.

bullseye also runs the 5.10 LTS kernel which now correctly runs the Intel SST sound modules re-written for Haswell & Broadwell after i raised my first ever FOSS bug #896822.

My new refurb Yoga 260 has Bullseye power. Changed the sources.list & 1404 files later Buster is now Bullseye

breaks the analogue audio on my Helix 2nd Gen when in tablet only mode. grrr

The Case Against Tablets

As I hunt for new computing hardware, I’m coming to the conclusion that tablets are simply a mistake. And yes, strongly informed by using one as a primary device for 5 years.

An ultra-light laptop has better utility and vastly superior privacy.

The one killer function, reading documents, seems better served by an e-book reader. ...

I'm exploring this question on Diaspora, with some good suggestions. Upshot is that tablets do most things poorly and virtually nothing well. And the landscape fully sucks.

Text reading and possibly notetaking is the major exception. And for that, an e-ink reader is the preferred option.

I'm surveying what uses people have, multi-response, with a goal more of completeness than representation. Please explain "Other".
