Is there a stylus that works with the Yoga?

2012-11-03, 22:37 PM

I would think the pen for the ipad with capacitative screen would work but has anyone tried it? And if so, does it require additional software?

I haven't tried one myself, but when I was looking at it at Best Buy the guy I talked to (who actually was decently compitent amazingly) said he'd used on of the Yoga's during the Microsoft Windows 8 training and had used a stylus with it. What type I don't know, but a standard capacitive screen one should work.

Not sure about one-note as I have never used it. I have to say that I have not tried the stylus for anything to pointing at the screen and some base sketching (redlining) on a CAD software.

 

I have to say that I am not impressed. The screen was designed for the finger... =(.  the stylus does make things a little but more precise but it is nothing like a the Galaxy note with its special pen or a Wacom.

 

I am a bit disapointed in that aspect.. Other than that, I love this PC.

I just wanted to throw what I use in the mix. I got the Jot Pro stylus for x-mas and it is working great. I just ignore the disk that is on it and focus on where the "tip" is, and it almost matches my handwriting on paper. I have been using it for notes and sketches in class with the free NoteAnytime app and it works awesome. The NoteAnytime even converts PDF to be used with your notes, so I can write all over my "textbooks." As well as I "print" my papers to pdf to write on those as well.

I was considering getting the Jot Pro stylus, but have read so many reviews about it scratching screens (iPads and the Nexus). Have you had any issues like that and are you using the Yoga?


I would really like a stylus that I could do neat hand written notes with (especially when writing equations for physics and math) but I don't want to compromise my screen.

That's surprising. I have a Bamboo also, and it doesn't work on the Yoga very well at all...
