Josh there's no pen in this one.

Guys does anyone know another convertible like that?

I believe Sony had a Vaio Flip 15 with a 15 inch screen and N-trig support and dedicated graphics in some models, and the Acer R7-572G was somewhat similar. They've both been discontinued as far as I know, and it's a shame. Sharp announced a 15 inch tablet, and I think they never delivered on it. 

 

There just doesn't seem to be that much choice within this category, probably because of casual users who don't really need pen support and complain about large screen sizes. At this point, I'm not so sure the TPY15 with pen will actually make it out. 

 

In the meantime, this thread is 15 pages, and the thread on tabletpcreview is 78 pages. Lenovo is just not good at communicating with it's user base, so I have a feeling that they will lose plenty of customers.

The active pen support has disappeared from every store in Europe! I bought this device with pen a month ago, but they cancelled my order after three weeks, telling the device isn't available now.

We have ordered over 100 Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 laptops with active pen support here in Belgium.  Not sure if it is available on the 15" but certainly with the 14. The pen is called the ThinkPad Pen Pro. We also have 135+/- Helix 2 models with the digitizer pen (without battery).

Yes the 14" version has Active Pen. But the 14" version lacks some other features, for example more than 8GB of RAM.

 

I just wish Lenovo would give us an answer about the 15" version vith Active Pen. Just some official response like "don't wait, it's not gonna happen" or " wait, it will happen"...

I had an online chat with Lenovo sales last night, and I would told the ThinkPad Yoga 15 with Active Pen support would be released in September.  The sales rep said they had gotten an update from the development team that afternoon.

 

I will believe it when I see it.

I strongly hope that this is the good time.

In fact, things seem to align, September is in the third quarter and windows 10 will have the first patches. And also hoping that the US realease date will be the same as the WE.

I will wait until September,  after that I must buy a laptop, active pen or not. I am very torn between this and 14, I can not figure out if there is much difference in the use of every day.
Meanwhile in your opinion what would be the possibility to have a pen on a PC without native support? I read something about a dongle, but I did not understand what it is.
Another question: on a PT Yoga 15 without support for active pen would work only passive pens?

definitely DO need native support to write on screen. a "dongle" couldn't change that, unless you mean the whole pad that you write on; the digitizer needs to be built in to the device you write on.

 

A "passive" stylus as you put it is basically only a fake finger; since the device has touchscreen support, a "passive" stylus either wouldn't work (if it was a stylus designed for a digitizer) or would work just like a finger (if it was just a one of those cheap stylus). In other words, if it works at all, the precision would be terrible, you wouldn't get any pressure sensitivty levels, you wouldn't have any chance of buttons or eraser functionality, and you wouldn't get any palm rejection because the computer couldn't tell difference between your flesh and stylus.

 

if screen does have built in digitizer, none of those are true.
