4X80F22110 - Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Pen - Will work? You can buy?


Good day.

 

Quoted from that page: "Digitizer Pen does not require batteries".

Active Pen pens, on the other hand, use a AAAA battery.

 

Hope this helps to clarify.

Regards.

graphic pen for Thinkpad Yoga 15"

2015-05-07, 16:53 PM

Hi guys! I'm writing from Italy, because I wanna buy a Thinkpad Yoga 15", the convertible one. I don't know if there's just another discussion on this fact, but my question is: Can you use the Yoga 15" in the tablet version to draw with a graphic pen? On the internet there's a lot of confusion about this. I read that there is a battery powered pen for 14" and 15", but where you can find this? Has anybody links to explain my questions? Thank you so much guys! I'm a comic drawer and I need a bigger graphic table than the Yoga 12,5" convertible one, so please help me :)

It seems the ThinkPad Yoga 15 Business Ultrabook will be the one with the active pen -> http://shop.lenovo.com/il/en/laptops/thinkpad/yoga-series/yoga-15/#tab-features

 

Therefore it doesn't show any seller right now, but lets hope it becomes available soon because I really want to buy this one on the near future and make some art on it.

The exact same thing is written on the "normal" ThinkPad Yoga 15 page.

It makes me angry that they write "Optional Active Pen Support" when in reality it is not an option. They are making a promis they don't keep. It should have been removed from the webiste long ago. The fact that it still stands there makes it look like a scam.

There is only one version of the thinkpad 15, but that version comes in several "trim" levels  (different ram, HD etc) and will eventually be able to have its components customized, supposedly. One set of of options you will supposedly (I heard by end of May, but they said same thing every month so far this year!) be able to get is the digitizer touchscreen with activepen stylus. So that is why they say it is an option. Unfortuntely for us all, the OPTION is that we keep waiting until they decide to grace us with the product that was promised by March.

So, are you guys telling me that the lenovo thinkpad yoga 15 available on this link: http://shop.lenovo.com/it/it/laptops/thinkpad/yoga-series/yoga-15/ hasn't the active pen support, even if is written that it has, and that a new model, yet non available will have the active pen support? If this is real, Lenovo is a terrible company, with not right info on devices. It's incredible. So, for the active pen support, have I wait for the Thinkpad Yoga Business 15"? Is the business definition that makes the difference?

It is true that there is no such thing as a thinkpad yoga 15 that has stylus pen support, YET.

 

It is NOT true that the word "business" differentiates pen support from no pen support. 

 

All the Thinkpad Yogas are in the same line, which is a "business" line. Some will support pen stylus, eventually, but only if you can select a configuration with an active diitizer display the explicitly says it has pen support. Right now you can't do that because they don't offer it, even though they say they do. It is super annoying.

 

The only Lenovos currently being offered that do support pen input are the Thinkpad Helix 2 and the THinkpad Yoga 12 if configured with pen support display, not all are.

 

But supposedly in May they are going to offer thinpad yoaga 15s with pen support and a new Broadwell-based generation of 14s are supposed to come out that also support it. That was supposed to happen months ago but apparently is supposed to happen in May. Don't know about international releases. 

If they put pen support on the La Vie lineup, I would sell a kidney to get one.

vinconti I'd hug you! I was buying a 15" one, but now I'll wait the 15" with pen support. Can we remain in contact? When you'll have news about the supported one, shall you tell me? I'd sell two kidneys to have this convertible with pen support, indeed. I can give you my mail contact!
