    The s-pen will work, but it won't be very fun. It will have an offset. You could probably calibrate it to work, but then you couldn't use the pen you're using now.

    This will work.

    This thread has an excellent discussion about the kinds of Wacom pens that will work. I'd personally recommend something like the Fujitsu Lifebook pens, as they'll have two side buttons and an eraser.

    Thanks for your reply. I will buy the Thinkpad digitizer then.

    I have the same question--what's a good spare pen for a *first gen* EMR TP10 spare/replacement? I've found that just
    buying any old EMR pen off of Amazon or swapping out with a device from another Wacom EMR tablet doesn’t necessarily work well.

    I have the TT10 gen 1 with EMR. Still my daily secndaey device. I wish I had 4g, and that it had more pep. Some basic tasks are still a little slow on it, and anything with even minor heft (photoshop, certain tasks on Squarespace, etc) make it choke.

    I wonder if this gen 2 has a good enough bump in CPU power to be worth the upgrade. ??? I'd have onlove to AES, but I do ok on my TY14 with AES. Prefer EMR, but it might be worth it if I could get 4g and a good enough CPU. There's still rally no other competitor in the 10" windows tablet range, as far as I can tell.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    It really depends on which version you have.
    I have a TP8 with the Z3795, 4GB RAM and 128GB eMMC and it is leaps and bounds faster in real live then the Dell V8P with the Z3740 and 2GB RAM.
    The 4GB make a hell of a difference.

    Here you can see the difference in raw power on the Z3770, Z3795 and Z8750.
    The Z8 has a much faster GPU, but it needs more batterie.

    If you're OK with paying $70-$100 for the hardware, cracking open the case, and diying it, you can convert your TP 10.1 1st gen into a 4G device. I'm thinking about doing it to mine. There's info. on how to do it in one of these threads, though I don't have the time to dig it up for you right now. If LTE is really what you want, that may be the way to go for you.
