Re: Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 15 Active Pen

They are missing a potentially huge market by not offering a larger (14"+) yoga with a pen option: the thousands of graphic designers and artists out there. A 12" screen is simply too small for serious graphics/art, the toolbars and controls become so small that using them is like threading needles. I've been waiting for months to get one of these, but now it looks like I am going to have to explore other options.

Me too, Meniscus. I'm angry also because no one of Lenovo company says a thing about this continuous delay of the product. It's unbeliavable!

I was under the impression it came with digitzer support and you would need to  order it separately. Is it in the box?

The TPY14 does sound good, but I'm going to wait it out for the 15 inch devices. After using a 12.5 inch tablet pc for some time, going to 14 doesn't seem like a huge upgrade. Screen real estate is incredibly important for designers, architects, engineers etc..

 

Also for anyone interested, the TPY14 from best buy DOES NOT come with a pen. You have to get it separately. In fact, best buy doesnt even advertise the fact that you can use a pen on that certain model.

My Yoga 15 will be in my hands Monday. I bought two versions of some Wacom style active Pens also and will see if anything happens. I'm curious about the "component" issue that caused it to disappear from the site. Hoping it's a shortage rather than a defective component.

Lenovo US website July 25th is where I ordered it. At the time they had a counter of how many they had left - it said I think 60 the first time I visited . When it got down to 40 I ordered as Windows 10 launch was 4 days away and I figured they would go quick after launch and they did.

I tried a wacom pen on a 14 in a best but and it didn't work. It was the older version wacom, not Activepen, so it is possible that is the problem, but what I think is now likely is that the 14 comes with the wacom chipset (which is what you see in device manager), for board standardization, but the screen has no digitizer. That is consistent with a product that can later be customized for different screens, as most lenovos are

No, none of these models work with a wacom or active pen. As covered in previous posts based on responses from lenovo via mail.
 
The active pen version has always been presented as optional. But it is still not an option you can pick... 
 
The versions available can not be updated to work with a pen.
