    Despite the lack of warranty I am still looking to buy one from the US. I've been without a laptop and a drawing device for well over a year now and I'm eager to get back into the hobbies I have put on hold since 2014.

    Assuming I can get someone to give the device a vigorous inspection before it is shipped over, what should I be asking that person to test for? I've started to do a list but I am bound to miss something!

    Any updates on this? Was the import tax sorted out prior to the shipping or are you having to pay for it now that it has been stopped by customs?

    I think in the end I paid around £112 (£8 of which was for parcel force the rest vat). So far my machine seems to be fully functional (famous last words)

    Think about it this way, if it doesn't get hot on the outside when loaded, the internal temperatures are probably too high. All the units I've had get burning hot (literally) near the vent after being stress tested. I once forgot I was stress testing it and put it on my lap, nearly flung the thing off. :p

    So I was checking drivers on Lenovo's site, and stumbled on some other 20FY product numbers. Add the model number after the base URL to see a short description. They are mostly the same, the z1t3us comes with win 10 pro and a 1TB HDD, and the 0004 comes with an i7! the 0000 and 0001 have a smaller HDD instead of SSD? so maybe they will be slightly cheaper models. Happy with mine, but thought I would point out what I stumbled on.

    Models:
    0004us
    0003us
    0002us
    0001us
    0000us
    s00000
    z1t3us

    Tweaks to the Wacom Radial Menu?

    Hey everyone...

    Has anyone been using the pen enough to dig into the Wacom Pen settings? I found the Radial Menu option, which seems pretty handy, but I have noticed an issue with it. I would like to take advantage of the Quick Note and Screen Capture note options (with OneNote), but these shortcuts in the radial menu seem to point you into the "Metro" OneNote app (not the OneNote 2013 desktop app that is part of Office 2013). Is there a way to get those shortcuts to point at the OneNote 2013 app?

    Thanks!

    I responded to your PM. They replaced the screen on my Thinkpad Yoga 12 for image retention.

    Can anyone explain to me when it uses the Intel video versus the Nvidia?

    Regarding the blurry screen. When I first got this new one it looked pretty clear. I went into the Lenovo util and there was an intel driver update for the video card. After that it looked blurrier. I uninstalled the driver and it got clear so I grabbed the driver from windows update.

    It's still not crystal clear, especially windows, like if you were installing something but its better. I think it may have something to do with those intel drivers.

    Has anyone found a decent screen protector for this new TPY14? Someone mentioned that the screen protector for the older TPY14 doesn't fit quite right. I want to start drawing with mine, but I'm worried about scratching the screen (which someone else mentioned happened with a previous tablet of theirs). Or is it not necessary with this screen?
