Any recommended pen for this laptop. Any deals in BF sale
I ordered an active pen from amazon last night, received by today. I did not go with the second gen as it didn't say it is compatible with Flex 6.

This is quiet disappointing. How many of these MS had available online? 5?

I used a P.O. Box (Canada Post ship to store) to avoid it being left on my doorstop.and now the code is no longer valid. Well done, all others who ordered.

Which one did you get for this Lenovo, can you send me a link if possible, not sure which one to get. Also how much was it. Thanks

Curious why this is a great deal? Are the Yoga’s build quality much better than the flex?
I noticed that it needs an adapter for HDMI.
1. Larger NVMe drive (256GB)
2. Thunderbolt 3, Flex 14 is just type-c (doesn't indicate if it support DP alt mode)
3. Lighter than OP's flex 14 by 1lbs

QUALITY UPDATE
So I had this laptop so far for 2 days. Overall a good design and quality is decent. I have found one minor problem, which I am not sure if it's just affecting my laptop or other flex 6 models.
Basically, when you open and close the laptop the hinges are pretty tights, this leads for the actual screen panel to bend a little (even though we can't see those gaps), which often times causes a pop sound because an extremely small gap occurs between the screen and the bezel. The front plate the holds the screen is plastic and pretty flexible, which essentially the root of the problem.

You guys can do a test: Open the laptop with one hand, pinch the screen on both sides and run it by the perimeter, if there is a small gap it will pop back into place.

I have definitely noticed that the hinges are pretty tight and the screen flexes when opening, but I do not have any misalignment or popping sounds.

Originally I haven't noticed the popping sounds. It was random, I opened the laptop and ran my fingers around the border and on the right side of the screen (in the middle) the small gap develops between the bezel and the plastic panel.
