Which stylus works with my computer, passive or active?

I have been given three different answers by HP in regards to a stylus pen. Please let me know if anyone is using a stylus and what kind.

Interesting that there are different answers.

I have just the one:

I do not find any evidence that this system supports an active stylus.

 

That said, the result (No pens for a certain model) is a common answer.

There are more computers that do not support an active pen than models that do support an active stylus / pen.

 

What about the "Passive" pen?

Most touch screens that support touch will support a passive pen.

Remember, this is NOT the same thing as an active stylus.

 

Passive pens work like your finger tip and are generally used for the same purposes (opening menus, "finger painting" in those programs / software that support the option).

 

There are almost as many articles on the net as there are opinions about which passive pen is "better".

To choose / learn more:  Use your favorite browser and Search for "passive pen" or "Capacitive stylus"
