    Yeah, I found the Amazon one on my own. Not sure if the one I found works on Verizon, though. I can see how $75 might make sense. I might even try it this summer if I really take to the TP10 and I get fed up with my situation at work.

    Yet I question the reasonableness of Lenovo's pricing if the LTE model costs a few hundred dollars more than an otherwise identical wifi only model. It seems to me that LTE models typically go for about $100 more than their Wifi counterparts, even in the case of the Surface 3 or iPads, and HP even has models that have LTE standard that are reasonably priced relative to similar wifi only competitor models.

    I was so pleased with my Thinkpad 10 for the price that I bought another one from playitagainpc on ebay for my adult neice. The one I kept for myself is still on Windows 8.1, and there is much that I like about the ol' 8.1 user interface; but I'll probably push it over to Windows 10 eventually. I'm especially impressed with the keyboard.

    Two questions:
    1) One of the pens broke. Does anyone know how I can find a replacement pen at a decent price that will fit in the silo? If that's not possible, are there any other pens/styli that anyone would recommend that won't cost, say, over $30 on Ebay or Amazon?

    2) Does anyone know which dock works with the Thinkpad 10 (1st Gen)? Since there's a Thinkpad Tablet 10, a Thinkpad Tablet 2 10, and two generations of the Thinkpad 10 tablet, I'm not sure what is what when it comes to finding a dock accessory.
    Thanks in advance!

    Check on the lenovo site for compatible dock. As for me, I would not bother. You cannot replace more powerful laptops with thp10. Unless of course your appetite for productivity is less hungry.

    I replaced my old Thinkpad X301 Notebook with a Surface 3 (same X7-Z8700 Atom as the TP10). Been using it as my daily driver and docked at work for over two years now.

    It is not a problem to use thp10 with docking station. I have to say, I am using my thp10 for more than 4 years now. But it too slow, my X220t which is 4 years older than thp10 is still faster than thp10. This days low price range laptops would easily over power thp10.
    Though, is it really necessary to buy docking station?

    Hi all,
    You guys are so helpful and this thread is very helpfull as well. Thanks for that.

    I just bought a TPT10 for only £50. Its used but serves the purpose. I bought this to take notes in class. I have a separate i5 laptop for homework. So this seemed the cheapest option. So for its been a good experience as I only use OneNote.

    I only need a little bit of your help to buy a compatible stylus/pen, a spare one. I couldn't find any post stating which pen/stylus are compatible. I understand it has to be wacom penabled.

    So I am going for this one
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-S...727424&hash=item1c897a4e72:g:OTQAAOSwFqNZUBhB
    or
    This
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Digitizer...565258?hash=item3ac31d114a:g:gvAAAOSwQNRXLcCt

    Please let me know if these will work with TPT10. Or any compatible stylus available.

    Best Regards
    Imran Saeed

    There are two generations of TPT10 with EMR and AES digitizer technologies respectively. Former has battery-free pen and latter has battery powered pen. Some of the former tablet models came without built in digitizer too. You should be able to tell the type from the 10 digit type id of your tablet.

    I have TP10 first gen, with EMR (as the pen I am using right now has no batteries). Yes it has a digitizer. Any idea the above two pens (I have posted the link) are compatible with TPT10?

    Use genuine non battery stylus from lenovo.
    Some wacom styluses simply does not work on tpt10, I have end up buying thinkpad one.
