Yoga 720 (15") Pen choice (compatibility)

Hello,

 

I've recently bought a Yoga 720 laptop and I'd really love to buy and use a pen with it but I don't know which one is compatible with my laptop.

My Lenovo Companion app reports this information for the exact model:

    Make: Lenovo YOGA 72015IKB

    Type & Model: 80X7

 

I think this is the description page for it: http://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/yoga/700-series/Yoga-720-15/p/88YG7000828 .

Is the Lenovo Active Pen for Miix 700 and Yoga 900s | GX80K32882 compatible?

Would any of these listen here be compatible: http://search3.lenovo.com/search?w=lenovo%20active%20pen&fsearch=yes ?

If none is compatible, what other options do I have?

 

Thank you.

Hi there, Corneliuzuzu            -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Still whichever capacitive pen you choose will largely be based on your own personal preference for size, weight, etc.

 

Wacom Bamboo Smart 2-in-1 is compatible with yoga 720 and it works great!!

 

Update us how it goes.

Hi Shashi, thank you for your reply.

The linked description page for 720 says:

 

"

Get Creative with Optional Lenovo Active Pen

 

Sketch a portrait for your next gift, or send notes on a friend’s short story, with the optional Lenovo Active Pen......

"

 

Does this mean my laptop is also compatible with Active Pen? If yes, which one - would GX80K32882 work?

I'd like something supporting multiple pressure levels and hand detection (rejection) - does the Bamboo Smart have that?

Could you maybe provide a more comprehensive explanation/list of compatible pens?

 

Thanks.

I've been satisfied with the Lenovo active pen.

 

I do wish it had an eraser button like I'm used to but it's not a dealbreaker for me.  I may try the bamboo pen too.

Hi Michael,

 

You've got the same laptop model then (Yoga 720 15")? So then Active Pen _is_ compatible? If yes, you meant the model GX80K32882 (idk if there's any other), right?

I know this has been marked as solved but, somehow, the Bamboo Ink hasn't been mentioned at all... It's the only option you need consider (if you're in the US, that is)
