Compatible pen for Yoga 710?

I just purchased a Yoga 710 15 for digital art and cannot seem to find a presure sensitive pen to use with it that is compatible with my laptop and works with Adobe CS and other art software (gimp, inkscape, etc.). I bought a Lenovo Active Pen but it doesn't seem to work with my laptop (or maybe I'm just not using it right, I'm not very tech savvy and the thing didn't come with instructions) Anyway, if anyone out there knows of a pen that will work or can tell me if the Lenovo Active Pen (GX80K32882) that I have is even compatable with my Yoga 710 I would be very grateful! Thanks in advance!

The active pen works on the 720, not the 710. The 720 has a pressure sensitive screen while the 710 has a capacitive (like your phone). So only a stylus will work on the 710.

Re: Compatible pen for Yoga 710?

People have been asking this for their Yoga 500/700/900/510/710/910

Your best bet is Jot Pro no pressure, cost around 30$

Or better solution, connect an external Wacom tablet to any usb port

I have both for my Yoga 500

For digital art, they are ok. Not for note taking. Yoga 5xx/7xx/9xx however are too big for note taking
