    I was able to add it to my cart in the Wacom US store.
    https://us-store.wacom.com/Catalog/...ct-tablets-and-2-in-1-convertible-devices-S01

    Definitely going to contact both Wacom and Lenovo to get some answers. It's so weird that I've learned more about pen tech here, than from the people who are selling it :D.

    It must have just gone on sale.

    [EDIT] Hmm. The shopping cart on the Bamboo Smart page is disabled and I can't even get the store to open. You sure you didn't accidentally order the Samsung version?

    [EDIT2] But your store link worked. Weird. Ordered!

    Glad to hear the order worked! I'd much prefer to use a pen with interchangeable nibs, because plastic on plastic is not the best experience. The Thinkpad Pen Pro is all right, but obviously not as customizable as a Wacom pen would be.

    I drew a little doodle as an example of the keyboard 170°.
    I would say this is the best way only if you wanted to work with it as flat as possible. I'm not sure about the how long it would be comfortable after a long while. I'm pretty tall, so I probably have more leg room than most. I would say this is the best way only if you wanted to work with it as flat as possible. I personally find it more comfortable to draw at more of an angle with the keyboard facing toward/on my chest, but that may be just me.

    Oh yeah, that is really strange. I’m not sure how many others have had the same issue, but it’s definitely possible that AES screens are more prone to these types of problems. I’m sending mine in in a couple days to get it fixed, so hopefully it comes back without any issues.

    I would never consider a touch and penabled device running Windows 7.
