    I would think any decent new-ish 21:9 monitor would have a DisplayPort input on it.

    My stylus pen order finally come today, Dell active pen PN556W.

    Pros:
    - Good weight, comfortable to draw
    - Great pressure sensitivity
    - Pointer detection more than included pen for TPY 14 bb about 2mm farther

    Cons:
    - Doesn't have nip spare, default is like hard plastic and slippery on screen (on par with included pen)
    - Barrel button not so easy to recognize when in use but much better than included pen
    - Not included coin cell battery for bluetooth power so I can't use cap button at the moment (It will on pros side when it working)
    - Doesn't have nip cap, It might breaking the nip when falling at nip first.

    Plans:
    - buy coins cell battery 319 and spare aaaa battery
    - have a pen cover cap for stylus (I must trying every single manual pen cap to fit it at store)
    - try sticker barrel buttons for fingers to easy finder

    Overall very pleasant to use Dell active pen PN556W with TPY 14 bb.
    My drawing experience is better than included pen, It just like using ordinary pen with ink ... but on plastic sheet not on a paper.
    It biggest advantage is so comfortable to handle than tiny included pen, even against some ordinary pen I had

    Sorry I don't have lenovo / thinkpad pro pen so I can't compare them.
    Actually I did order a thinkpad pro pen when I bought TPY 14 bb but somehow they sent me a thinkpad EMR Stylus :eek:
    Too bad the parcel take almost 4 months delivery time to my place which I can't complaint about wrong tipe of pen they had sent.

    Finally I got my needs today ... but forgot about sticker for barrel button :p
    I get important things from aaaa battery & coin cell spare for any shortage in the future to a fit cap for covering stylus nip ... yay
    I got the cap from zebra permanen maker with 2 point out inks, I don't know the type cause it written with japanese kanji text.

    Other good news is button cap perfectly work when I insert 2 coin cell 319 / SR527.

    Unique design of Dell active pen is they need 2 type of battery, For stylus use an aaaa battery and for bluetooth use 2 coins cell 319.
    It has separate compartment for each battery, this can having individually active function even when one type battery is out.
    Stylus can active without coin cell battery inserted with result in disable cap button function and reverse too, cap button can active even when aaaa battery taken out with resulting disable stylus ink function.

    Hi guys,
    I have decided to pull the trigger and get the 460, but with just small questions that I would really appreciate some answers to.

    I saw someone using the m.2 slot and put a ssd in it. But I have also read online somewhere that it shouldn't be used as boot drive or else the device may not wake up from sleep. Can someone confirm this information?

    Does the 460 support 16Gb ram from Crucial?

    Thanks again for any help.

    I am using an 850 EVO 2.5" SSD so I cannot comment on the m.2 slot but yes, I can confirm 16GB works fine. Not a hint of trouble replacing the stock 8GB module with a 16GB one.
