    I have not noticed any, any would be surprised to have any given the matte screen protector on there.

    Using a different pen with different tips would certainly make a difference depending upon the hardness. I believe any high quality pen would be adequate and not cause issues.

    You could put another layer on there. I recently played with a "Privacy" protector that I got for my iPad Pro and just layed it on the Yoga and it still seemed to work. Naturally visibility / brightness will be reduced based on the screen protector.

    The small "silo" pen is actually quite handy and you get used to it pretty quickly. For a time there I was preferring it to other pens. I stopped doing that in fear of forgetting it and then not having anything when I'm out and about.

    I just do occasional note taking (onenote) on mine, not doing drawing or art work. So I'm probably less picky about these things just because my usage isn't as critical (although as I type that I have to laugh because I believe I am quite picky about these things regardless, so.... :)

    My iPad Pro is my goto for a lot of note-taking as well and the X1 Yoga is the next closest device I've ever used for a great pen on paper experience.

    I've noticed this problem in OneNote - the pressure response is flat in my normal handwriting range, which hinders legibility. I've tried using the Wacom driver to fix this, but when I hit the "calibrate" button I get an unresponsive white screen. Do you know how to adjust this setting?

    I'm not sure why your calibration screen would be unresponsive, but calibrating won't improve your pressure sensitivity. On the first panel of the Wacom pen driver, look for the sensitivity slider. Moving it towards the Firm setting should make your inks less flat by requiring more pressure to reach 100% ink flow.

    FYI, while it is already pretty much expected, the 2nd generation fo the X1 Yoga should be announced next week together with the rest of the X1 family (Carbon + Tablet).

    AFAIK, there have been no real leaks thus far, but I found that a X1 Yoga 2nd was certified by a German certification body in November.

    No real information available, but the manufacturer part number and Lenovo product codes are:
    TP00076C
    20JD
    20JE
    20JF
    20JG

    Anyone else have their start menu pop up even though you're not touching the laptop? I've got Start10 installed but pretty sure this was happening even without it installed.

    Hi all,

    I've managed to drop my thinkpad x 1 yoga and crack the screen. :( I don't have accidental damage cover and I'm guessing Lenovo's charge will be very high so I'm looking to replace it myself.

    I'm guessing I need to buy the complete lcd with digitizer? Can anyone confirm this?

    Looking at the Lenovo service parts list these are all the screens available.

    00JT853 N 14",WQHD,no-glare,TP,TPK+LGD

    00JT854 N 14",WQHD,no-glare,TP,LBO+LGD

    00JT855 N 14",WQHD,no-glare,TP,LBO+PAN

    00JT856 N 14",FHD,non-glare,TP,TPK+LGD

    00JT857 N 14",FHD,non-glare,TP,LBO+AU

    I currently have the 00JT856 N 14",FHD,non-glare,TP,TPK+LGD. Does anybody know if I can swap out my FHD screen for a WQHD screen or are the connections different.

    Lastly can anyone recommend a reliable seller where I can source a replacement screen from.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ik have exactly the same situation, broken my panel 2 weeks after buying the Yoga X1.

    Did some research and from the partlist discovered you will need to replace the lcd cable as well.

    Part nummer: 00JT849 HQWD LCD CABLE

    Did you already succeed in replace nog the lcd panel?

    For reliable suppliers: dependance on wereld you live. Best offers seem to be in China and US. I door live in Europe and found reasonable priced supplier, which only sells to busines, not to consumer.

    Did you find a solution for this problem?
    It happens rarely, but today it is poping up non-stop.
    I don't have Start10 installed.
