This link talks about the Yoga 14 and the pen.  This is a very good review with hands on.

... and here's a video of the TPY 14 being used with the active pen.

Looks pretty good to me, though that review does show some shakiness in the diagonals with low pressure. If they would make the 15.6" version available I would almost certainly buy it at this point.

Maybe they are waiting to release the 15 with Windows 10 pre-installed. The reps have probably been told to not comment on it even if they do know something for legal reasons, at least that's the way the IBM PC Company (which is what lenovo really is, more or less) used to handle things like this when I worked there. Still, it would be nice if they would at least tell us if they have plans of releasing it in the United States or not, even if they have no ETA.

There was a Product Spec update on Wednesday (got an automated email), and the TPY15 was updated to Win10 (as in pre-installed), but still no pen support.

I wonder if Lenovo's problem relates to the layer on the display that is used for the Active Pen.   This being a larger screen than the 14 means the layer is therefore different (larger).  That in itself should not be a problem.  But, the pen is available on their site and I ordered one.  So, I am speculating that the problem is the component (layer) that the pen interacts with.

 

Lenovo is infamous for bad communication.  I bought a Yoga Think Pad 2 a couple of years ago and there were a lot of problems because of this lack of communication.  Some users and dealers thought that if they simply bought the pen, their tablet would be able to use the pen they just bought.  WRONG!  They made two versions, with and without the pen (and subsequent layer).  The only way to visually identify the difference was the red cap on the built-in pen.

 

Lenovo's marketing is still very bad relating to communication.

 

So, we shall wait and see.

The Austrian site ( http://shop.lenovo.com/at/de/laptops/thinkpad/yoga-series/yoga-15/ )now also removed the active pen from the description, so i guess they will cancel my order shortly.

 

I can not even find words to describe how incompetent his whole debacle makes Lenovo look. I am speechless. In a time when I personally have to go to incedible lengths to satisfy my customers to make them stay with my company, a company like Lenovo **bleep**s all over it's customers and gets away with it with soaring profits. It is incredible.

 

So after long years of using Lenovo products i'm afraid this is where we part ways.

 

PLEASE all of you who were excited about this product, since i think we chose it for simmilar features, can you tell me what alternatives you have in mind or you are looking at?

Here. You'll need to scroll way down, or just use Find to jump down. You can see that they said "ThinkPad Yoga 15 new models announced July 2015" but the only change from the last PSREF is changing the OS to Windows 10. My active pen just shipped, and I'm planning on going to get the TPY14 today or tomorrow depending on when UPS actually gets the package in their hands.

No.

 

http://shop.lenovo.com/at/de/laptops/thinkpad/yoga-series/yoga-15/

 

Two weeks ago it said "Active pen included", i ordered it amd my order status is stil "in process".

Some day last week orders were disabled, it still said "Active pen included" but you could not order it, the order button was changed for "comming soon".

Today they changed the specifications with active pen nowhere to be found...

 

My order status is still "in process" but i guess it will be canceled...
