Rated 5 out of 5 by salsa5280 from Love it! I was waiting for the 900s to be launched and ordered it as soon as I received the announcement email in April. I wanted it specifically for the flexibility and the stylus. I had worked with the Surface Pro, but I didn't like the keyboard and I found that pen was too sensitive. The Lenovo stylus is fantastic and hasn't let me down at all. It's accurate, works when you want it to, and makes the Lenovo 900s the best laptop on the market for portability in my opinion. I highly recommend this computer and stylus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by richard_29328 from Misleading Title If you're considering buying this, know that the "yoga 900s" is a different computer from the "yoga 900". The pen will work only with the 900s and not with the 900.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BTrammell from Good pen but has some design/marketing flaws I have been using a pen with my tablet/laptops since Lenovo first introduced them, so I'm used to using a pen. I purchased the Miix 700 as it looked like a GREAT new pen platform and would enable me to upgrade from my Lenovo Tablet 2. The problem was, Lenovo didn't have a pen that worked with it - even though they advertised a pen in the photos. This problem is now solved with the new Lenovo Active Pen. It does everything a pen should do for me. It's a good size, it writes smoothly, and it works fine. Now for the problems... - In order to use it, I had to install a BIOS patch. As a long time PC user, I don't have a problem with this. However, NOBODY at Lenovo support seems to know about the patch. It took several hours to find it. To add insult to injury, it is NOT supported byt he same people who support the Miix700. It's supported by the Think Support Group (whoever that is). Unfortunately, they will try to bounce you back to the Miix support people. So - install the patch and all is good. - Lenovo's design team came up with a creative way to allow you to attach the pen to your tablet when you're not using it. The pen comes with a plastic USB holder that plugs into your USB port! Bad idea. It will get lose and fall out eventually. Also, you need to remove it to plug in a USB device (duh). Since when I'm at home, I plug into a USB 3 dock so I can use a full size keyboard and mouse and my large Lenovo monitor, I'm pulling it out all the time. How about a nice case to put the pen in when you're not using it as a Tablet? - This is (as the name implies) an active pen. This means you need to keep batteries in it. On top of that, it's a AAAA battery - not one you'll find at your local store. So, I guess I'll buy one and keep it in my carrying case. Grrrrr Lenovo does provide you with several spare tips and a tool for replacing them. I've only worn through a tip once, but it's nice to have them. Overall, as I said before, it's a nice pen. There's just some design issues they didn't address and I feel they could/should have done better. But if you like using a pen, as I do, get it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by bkomanet from Horrible! Just got the pen and there is a big document that is more worried about safety and warranty than how to use the thing. No manual, no idea of how to use the thing. I have tried everything I can think of. A piece of junk without any idea of how to use it. I'm going to return it.
