I recently purchased Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 and am hoping to use this laptop for online trainings. I use an interactive classroom software for drawing diagrams, etc. Currently I use my finger for drawing, however, I would like to use a stylus. There is no official stylus for this model and I've already purchased two styli that did not work (Belkin and Wiacom bamoo). Strangely, the same styli work flawlessly on tabs and smartphones.
Does the screen of of Lenovo Flex use some different kind of capacitative touch technology? If yes, could you suggest which stylus would work smoothly with this model?

As far as I've tested, the Flex 15 is a standard capacitive 10-finger display. There's no reason a run-of-the-mill $10 capacitive stylus wouldn't work.
Capacitive touch uses liquid (in our case, water in our hands) to detect touch. The round bottomed rubbery styluses should work fine.

Thank you for the response.
Sadly, I've already tried two Styli, Wacom Bamboo and Belkin. Both of them did not work. I think the issue is with the surface area that comes in contact with the screen. If I press the rubber tip a little, more surface area comes in contact with the screen and it works a bit. However, that does not help if you're trying to write on the screen. There seems nothing wrong with the screen either because it works perfectly fine with my finger.
What is a Digital Stylus? Can that be used with the Flex?

I have the same need and i'm looking for a stylus that works. I tried three so far and no result. I bought this tablet mainly to take notes and its flexibility. If I do not get a solution this baby is going back to Lenovo. Where are they? Can we get a real answer to this?
