I need help with finding right stylus pen for lenovo yoga 2 pro!

2014-09-18, 3:30 AM

I did read other person's post, but I did not find my answer. I am currently using my fingers to write my notes and it drives me nuts! I do have a stylus pen that have huge round fabric tip. It does not write well. I want a stylus pen with pointy end so I can acturally take my notes on OneNote. I writes equations down so it is very hard to write small and neat with my hand. I do know that my laptop is touch sensitive so it only works with rubber or fabric tips! I could not find any stylus pen with those tip that are pointy.... I need help on finding pointy tipped stylus pen that will let me write well. I am ordering ati-glare screen protector because I can see myself on the screen like a mirror... lol Hopefully this will not keep me from finding a pen that works well! Please give me link to the pen, if you can! Thank you for reading!

AFAIK, the Yoga 2 Pro has no digitizer, so you're stuck with capacitative styluses, which are by necessity the huge tipped pens.

You can try smaller tipped pens, but they might not register properly.

ColonelONeill is correct.

The Yoga 2 Pro does not have a digitizer, so a capacitative stylus, which mimics a fingertip, is what you'd need.

 

Regards.

I heard the iphone and ipad pen works on lenovo as well since itech uses same tech as lenovo computers. So i ordered fine tipped pen for writing. Hopefully it works! I read it in the forum that the pen works. :smileylol:

They should work on any capacitative display. You won't get as pointy as a regular pen, but you can try smaller and smaller tips until they stop working consistently.

Try getting a small chunk of conductive foam, and see how small you can go before the screen rejects the input. Then look for a pen with tip at least this size.
