That said, AS could do a better job by providing better guidance. E.g., "small laptop" is a meaningless descriptor. All it would take is to describe the dimensions and that would be the end of it.

I do subscribe to the idea that larger items ought to be stowed. These things become projectiles in an emergency and I value my health more than I value some other person's self-importance to type during landing.
If only the bolded were true. We would have consistent and understandable rules, even application of PDB's, etc. What you describe is the ideal state but AS fails at either setting rules or training and FA's fail at even application.

I agree on the larger item. Once we are rolling I tuck my iPad to the side and pin it down with my elbow.
