    Is there a way to get Lenovo Battery Gauge for Thinkpad Yoga 260? What should I install, if yes?

    @DanielNTX thank you! Do I need to install Lenovo Power Management driver or anything else for it to work?

    HI guys, hows the Yoga 460's holding up?

    I'm seeing them on-sale now for $600 to 700 range. I know it lacks USB-C but this price range, its a fantastic 2-in-1 with Wacom AES!

    53 whr battery. I hope they can still get 6 hrs batterylife :)

    @Yao my friend has one, he likes it very much. It's a fantastic machine - except for dim displays, both FHD and WQHD; also, versions with dGPU mostly come with FHD displays. You should be able to get 8 hours of wi-fi surfing out of it.

    @Yao 242 cd/m2 according to notebookcheck review. WQHD display should be identical to X1 Yoga, i.e. not much brighter at 285 cd/m2. Both will do just fine for indoors, maybe even outdoors in the shade - but definitely not direct sunlight.

    thanks Starlight5. I wonder why Lenovo misses the boat here.

    However it seems possible to pick up Yoga 460 for $500 range. If that is the case. that is a GREAT deal for a 2-n-1 with Wacom AES. Hard to beat price / feature ratio here.

    @Yao yes, it's a great choice. There's also a sister model Thinkpad P40 Yoga, the only difference being Quadro GPU.

    Can anyone help me? I'm using the Lenovo pro pen and now when i'm hovering the pen over the screen it starts drawing by itself as if i'm touching it to the tablet surface, what could have happened? the pen is fully charged and i have the drivers installed.

    Also anyone figured a way around the jitter? i can barely draw if i'm going slowly, I'm thinking of getting the wacom bamboo stylus for this will it help?

    Also if i'm drawing and have my hand touching the screen sometimes the pen will start the stroke randomly around the screen and i get smears.

    I'd appreciate the help ;-;
