A tablet is a laptop with a touch enabled screen. There are various vendors offering different permutations on tablet form factor:

  • A standard laptop with full keyboard and non-rotatable, touch enabled screen (ex. Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch).

  • A laptop with no keyboard or touchpad, and only a touch enabled screen (ex. Microsoft Surface Pro).

Identifying the touch screen vendor

Open a terminal and run this command:

cat /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/product

This will output a list of your usb-devices, one of which would be the touch screen vendor. An example output would have:
