OK. Let it be.

I don't think either x-ref is particularly helpful. As Stephen points out, the "ノート = notebook" connection doesn't need to be explained. We even have "notebook" as a gloss. And we don't typically include an x-ref to an abbreviated form unless it's more common than the full form. I don't think that's the case here.

Oops, I neglected to check the history.

I suppose the sense cross-references serve two different purposes: one explains the etymology and the other explains that it may be abbreviated. I didn't think the former would be necessary since "notebook computer" is common in English as well, and probably nobody would think "note" refers to musical notes. But I may just be biased.

As Robin pointed out in 2018, the ノート is based on sense 1. Perhaps we should have both.
Not sure the パソコン xref is needed.
