X1 Carbon (3rd Gen, 2015) "Active" Capacitive Stylus

2015-05-24, 1:32 AM

Hi there...  First time user,  just bought an X1 Carbon Gen 3, still waiting on delivery.

I'm currently using a Sony Vaio which has a dedicated Active Capacitive Stylus which I love.  I bought the high res touch screen model of the X1 but it doesn't come with a pen, so I'm wondering if it is capacitive and if so could someone recommend a pen.  I'm giving my wife the Sony, which means she'll get my beloved pen too, which is a bummer.  Thanks

Good day and welcome to the community.

 

Congrats on the Carbon3! Great machines, IMHO.

It's definitely a capacitive touch screen, so you should be able to use the capacitive pen of your choice.

 

Cheers.

Actually I should really rephrase my request to:-  Active capacitive stylus..  Sorry about that.

My current Sony is using an active pen stylus, which is a lot more responsive.  Is the high res screen compatible with those I wonder.  Thanks
