@gcoupe: Could you please advise if you can use Lenovo Active Pen as a passive pen on Yoga 900? I.e. using it like a capacitive stylus (finger-like touch).


Pat, no, sorry, the Active Pen does not work as a passive pen on the Yoga 900.

Ok. Good that we identified that there is a pic in the press photos that could potentially be confusing for users. In conclusion, no active pen support on Yoga 910. The Yoga 910 only has a touch screen and can only support a capacitive pen (passive pen with a wide rubber tip).

Note: I did some research on the capacitive pens and found that it consists of "conductive foam core covered with thin rubber. [..] In addition, the tip needs to be wide enough to generate enough capacitance for the screen to register. [...] most touchscreens also have some filtering in software, to avoid getting confused by sensor noise, tiny droplets of water, and other things.

For these two reasons, you can only use a stylus designed for capacitive touchscreens."  Reference: link

Re: IFA 2016: YOGA 910

It seems that newest competitors for Microsoft Surface's from Lenovo is just announced tablets Miix 510/710 with WacomStylus (Active Pen) support. Unfortunately they have only 12" middle-level screens and 39Wh battery - that cant stand against Microsoft Surface Book with best 13.5" screen and 70Wh - best competitor could be Yoga 910... but without WacomStylus support it's not a variant... Smiley Mad

So it seems that Yoga910 will be just a toy for lamers, as Yoga900.

Very pitty, bb.

Betreff: YOGA 910: Best Laptop @ IFA 2016

Ever since you said that I kept wondering about it. We never clearly outlined what puts Yoga 910 ahead of the competition but maybe we should. As a specialist in the field and since you mentioned it: Could you specify what makes Yoga 910 the best for you in terms of technical specs and the design?

 

For me, and I am not an expert in this area, but what I like about the Yoga 910 is: (a) the nearly bezzles display, (b) fingerprint scanner, (c) I am a big fan of the USB-C charging (as the Yoga 910 charger could also charge a phone or tablet), and (d) I like the matte black color (unique for top ultrabooks).

Re: IFA 2016: YOGA 910

Does anyone have a confirmation about the battery size?

Some websites talk about 78WH (example: http://www.pcmag.com/review/347393/lenovo-yoga-910), other say 66WH (example: http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/lenovo-yoga-910-hands-on-review/), but in the official specs in the lenovo website they said 48WH only (http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/yoga/900-series/yoga-910/ in the current models part).

If it's only 48WH, this would be very disappointing, I hope it's only an error.
