Yoga 520 Pen Compatibility

Hello Cat Happy

 

I am thinking about purchasing a Yoga 520. 

So, which specific pen is the Yoga 520 compatible with?

 

(If the Yoga 520 is not compatible with a pen, what other Yoga models are compatible with a pen under $1000?)

 

Thanks! Cat Tongue

Re: Yoga 520 Pen Compatibility

Hi memecream

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Checking on the features of Yoga 520:

"...with the optional Lenovo Active Pen—which works directly on the Yoga 520’s touch screen. Pin-point accuracy, palm-rejection technology, and astonishing pressure sensitivity provide a natural, intuitive pen experience."

 

From another review:

"...coupled with an ultra-responsive touchscreen, the new Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 both offer optional active pen support for editing, note-taking and sketching on Windows Ink™ for more authentic personal expression."

 

Lenovo Active Pen is optional and can be ordered separately.

You may chat with the sales team : SALE extended phone hours! Now open until 7pm AEST on 1300 557 073 for availability and pricing 

 

 

Regards

Re: Yoga 520 Pen Compatibility

Hello

 

I have recently bought a Yoga 520 (UK) and have the same query. 

 

The link in your response takes me to the tech specs of the Lenovo Active Pen but gives me no option to purchase it, and when I search under the accessories for Pens none match the same name. No other availble pens state that they are compatable with a 520 either. 

 

Please could you advise if the Lenovo Active Pen is available in the UK, where to buy it and if not which alternative pen is compatable?

 

Thanks

Re: Yoga 520 Pen Compatibility

My lenovo Yoga 520 came with a pen included which unfortuately broke within 4 days as it uses a usb port to place it in and i forgot it was there and dflipped it into tent mode, and it snapped the tip off. So looking for a different compatible stylus with a different way of attaching/keeping it safe, as the usb port pen stand is 1. easy to forget and break pen when flipping into tent mode or tablet mode and 2. it consumes a usb port which i often need to use, and is a waste of a usb port.

Otherwise the pen is good for basic use, except it has windows pen settings and then a wacomm settings app too which can if not agree with each other's settings, break the touchscreen (happened to me already had to reformat)

Re: Yoga 520 Pen Compatibility

I am also looking for a pen and can't find a lenovo pen compatible with a Lenovo Yoga 350. I can't even find the Lenovo pen I know is compatible with it and I've had my computer for almost a year and I still cant find one.)

 

I just want a pen if anyone can tell me what pens actually work and are sold in Australia that would really helpful, because I draw all the time and I am stuck without something that has pressure sensitivity (drawing with a mouse all the time and no working ctrl keys is NOT fun because I can't even draw grass like that!) I just want something to draw with if anyone knows of something that I can draw with with pressure sensitivity that will work with a Lenovo Yoga 350 that is also good quality and relatively cheap, that would be nice to know too!
