Thanks for the recommendations. I went with a G502 wired mouse in the end, and I'm really liking it. I did occasionally hit the DPI up/down buttons by accident, but I'm getting used to it and not hitting them as much.
Bind them to something useful or unbind them so they do nothing.

I think all laptops should have a TrackPoint, like the ThinkPad. It is the perfect compromise between a trackpad and a mouse. You don't need to swing your finger around the place to move the cursor across the screen, and you can use it while wearing gloves. And it feels really natural to use it, at least on older ThinkPads, where the design made sense.
Best part was that the caps were removable so if it got grotty you just buy a four-pack of replacements for 50 cents.

I wish modern Lenovo wasn't garbage. I miss my indestructable brick laptops with dual batteries.

i mean, there are male micro/mini usb to female usb dongles out there that might work if your tablet has one of those, but i dont know if those will work with usb flashdrives

My mouse is a Logitech G402. Its nice. I like have the DPI options on the mouse. I think you can use an app in windows to change the DPI levels but I don't think one exists on Linux. I did use a Logitech G19 keyboard for a while. Its nice. I found it thrifting for $5, practically brand new and unused. A fucking steal, especially since ebay has a few listed right now at $100+. It still works, but I use a generic Dell one now. I just didn't like turning off the screen all the time and the lights on the keyboard itself bothered me.

Search for USB On The Go adapters, either MicroUSB or USB-C depending on however yours charges.

I'm thinking of buying a Microsoft Sculpt mouse because of the touch strip, but I'm not clear on what that allows you to do and how it can be configured, is there anyone with one that can enlighten me? Googling it is so incredibly heavy on links to buying it and the information on Microsofts site is shit. ("press it to bring up the start menu!" that just sounds annoying)
