Microsoft Surface pen on Lenovo Yoga 500

2015-12-11, 21:31 PM

Bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 and installed Staffpad (musicwriting) App.

Even bought a Microsoft Surface Pen to wright in Staffpad but doesn't work. Isn´t it comoatible with Lenovo?

What's a good alternative? Want to use Staffpad asap.

Neither the "Surface Pen" for Surface 3, Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book nor the old "Pro Pen" for Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 are compatible with the Yoga 500 as it lacks a suitable digitizer.


I recommend getting the ThinkPad Yoga 460 as it supports pens based on the Wacom Active ES technology.

In my opinion, those capacitive pens are just stopgaps and the experience - especially for note taking or sketching - is much worse compared to an active digitizer.
