    The HD screen model of the thinkpad 12 2015 has a pen.

    Are we talking about the same "HD". I wish there was a more uniform way to talk about resolutions on the screen.

    As far as I know, the 12" has never had the digitizer on the HD screen, but they do have it on their F-HD screen, which is also a matte finish.

    Sorry. I meant to say that it's my understanding that the high res 1980 screen on the TP Yoga 12 2015 has a active Wacom pen. I didn't know there was a higher res one.

    In less than 24 hours it has gone from October to November/January - it begins!

    "Lenovo can make that stylus tiny and easy to hold" - The author has never experienced hand cramp. A thin drawing tool is not a comfortable drawing tool.

    The Active Pen which Lenovo sells should work with this. Should.

    It could be that CNET got it wrong as they mentioned October in their video where-as Gizmodo are claiming November for the 260 and January for the 460. Both articles were put up today so I'm inclined to think the earlier date is wrong.

    I think the product names are hints: 260 will take 2-6 months to release, 460 will take 4-6 months.

    I wouldnt be surprised if they had delays rolling out the machines to the public in EU and USA. Lenovo's product roll outs are abysmally slow even if they release something at a convention.

    It's as almost like the stuff they show off at conventions is still in the process of R&D.

    My advice to anyone waiting for the 460: Don't fall for the trap, buy a ThinkPad Yoga 14 or look elsewhere cos' it will be a frustrating wait.

    Unless you have a lot of patience and no need for a device until 2016, in which case knock yourself out!

    I don't think there is a higher res than 1080p(FHD)? The one without the pen is the 720p HD display at least on the previous models.
