I need a stylus for digital painting with the YP2!

2014-01-08, 7:19 AM

I can't seem to find a clear answer for this one anywhere.

I just got a Yoga Pro 2 and the stylus that the Lenovo sales person recommended. It has a large squishy tip that just won't do for the things I want to do in Photoshop. Is the Yoga Pro 2 even capable of regognizing a pressure, fine-tip stylus for digital artwork? I would prefer to keep the YP2 instead of switching for a Think or Ideapad. Does anyone know if there is a stylus that works with the YP2 with programs like Photoshop and Illustrator? Or do I need to get another computer :(

You probably want a new computer honestly. The Y2P has no option for a "real" pen digitizer (pressure etc.) so while you might find a 3rd-party solution that will give you pressure sensitivity (I know Wacom has a $99 iPad stylus for example, so there's probably something like that out there), it's never going to be like a real Wacom digitizer.

 

The ThinkPad Yoga would be the closest thing to what you have now.

Thank you for the reply. I will take a closer look at the ThinkPads.

Take a look at the ThinkPad Yoga.

With the Yoga 2 Pro you would have to carry it around separately.

Or if you really want the Yoga 2 Pro:

These are decently accurate.

Looked the stylus you mentioned.  Do these work for the Win. 8.1 environment, as the stylus FAQ's don't have anything mentioning "for Win 8.1" or something.  They just mention Android and iOS.  Any clarification?

Thank you!
