I know this topic appeared a few times before on this forum but I am really confused especially after a Lenovo employee told me via pohne I could basically use any stylus on the Lenovo Yoga 510. I would be very grateful if someone could help me.
I read this article:
As i figured Lenovo Yoga 510 has a different touchscreen (no wacom technology, no digitizer?) than f.e. Yoga 460, which is much more expensive. Is that correct? Is that why I can not use f.e. the ThinkPad Stylus? Or was the employee right and it doesen't matter?
if not, is there any kind of alternative for the Yoga 510 apart from the cheap pens with the thick tip? I want something that is somewhat precise. I saw pens with a battery that appear to be capacitive by generating a small electromagnetic field like your finger but have a thin tip. Are these the only alternative for Yoga 510? Does the pen for Lenovo Think Pad definitely not work? What about the pens that comunicate via bluetooth mentioned in the article? Could they be an alternative for the Yoga 510?
If there is no real solution for Yoga 510 and there was a Lenovo Laptop with a similar price than Yoga 510, with similar performance and with digitizer I would consider changing mine but from what I saw the notebooks with digitizer are either much more expensive (like Yoga 460) or have a lower performance (like yoga book) is that correct?
Thank you very much.

I have the 710 14" and am in the same boat.
Without the digitizer, a stylus will have limited functionality, basically acting like your finger. Well, that and no fingerprints on the screen, which is why I bought one. The ones with good tips can get a little more precise than your finger but that's about it. When I say good tips I don't mean the ones with a fine point - most (all?) of those are meant to be used with a digitizer.
After reading several reviews I bought this one today - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J7RJ6VQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I should get it by the end of the week and will post back with my results.

So did you guys end up buying something that actually worked?
I also have the Yoga 510-14IKB Laptop whose specs say "10-point touch screen"(does that mean it is "capacitative" not "digitizer" ?
