Flex 5 - Active Stylus

2019-01-10, 18:31 PM

Lenovo Flex 5 laptop. For anyone who is trying to answer the question of which pen works with this laptop, this is my scenario:

I did a bunch of research and ended up purchasing a Wacom Bambo Ink Smart Stylus from Staples for about $100. I was surprised but it actually installed in seconds and works flawlessly for drawing and writing. I am mostly writing or annotating engineered drawings.

Hope this helps someone.

And does it support palm rejection? For example, if I write it and lay my hand there will be no interruptions?

Hi   and  


Welcome to Community Forums!

We do apologize for the late response.


Using the SmartFind tool of Lenovo it only shows the LENOVO Active Pen 1 which is compatible to your computer as shown on the photo below. If other type of pen worked for you then good to hear that so other users may have different options if they want to.



Hope this help answer your query.
