    Drawing on my laptop

    I have a touch screen laptop and I've been trying to find a pen that will work with it, but I can't seem to find anything that is compatible. It's a Lenovo Yoga710-15ISK and I want to be able to draw directly on my screen. Does anyone know of any pen that would work with my computer? Thank you!

    The Yoga 710 has a capacitive touch screen. An active stylus won't be compatible, but a number of companies make styluses (styli?) that are. One example:


    I don't own anything like that. Whether it works much better than a finger, I could only guess.

    You will not get good drawing experience without active pen like for example Wacom, ntrig, etc. AFAIK Your screen doesn't support active pen that means any creative work like drawing would be almost impossible or very hard with standard capacitive stylus. It probably will be better than finger but not much more. No palm rejection, no pressure levels and quite bad precision.
