Pen Compatability for the Spectre x360 13-w0xx Kaby Lake

Specter x360 13-w0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Will the spectre x360 13-w0xx Kaby Lake model ever get an active pen or stylus? After buying this product and having it for over 3 months, I do not see the reason you would make this a convertable laptop and not have it pen-supported. Also, is it possible to pair a bluetooth enabled pen to this specific laptop model?

Hi Jayming,

 

This model isn't listed on the matrix because it doesn't have a compatible active pen/stylus.  Any passive stylus will work with the laptop.  Sorry for the bad news.

Thanks for the helpful response, but do you know if it the laptop will ever be given a an active sylus/ pen support in the future? And will it be able to pair with Bluetooth pens since Bluetooth is enabled in this specific laptop model.

Hey Jayming,

 

There are no plans that I know of to support active pen on this model.

We are the suckers who bought this unit with the substandard synpatic touch screen device (if I am not mistaken).  Every other version seems to have a better touch screen device (I think the Microsoft version), which supports or will support an active pen. 

 

So we are stuck using a passive stylus which is pretty much useless. I specifically bought this device with the plans of using an active pen with it.

 

Was originally very excited for this unit and was my first HP computer and the specs were fantastic.  So disappointed.  Never buying HP ever again.

I agree because the advertising photos on HP's website showed people using an active stylus at the time I bought mine in Jan-2017 and after buying a stylus I found it doesn't work on my 13t-w0xx convertible. I feel that I also was a victim of false advertising. Better call Saul!

On the HP Specter x360 Convertible 13 Notebook website, it's clear that you can have a compatible pen after 6 months of buying the pen still unavailable, HP's support told me that the company did a great deal with Pens and they do not know what to tell me. I will never buy an HP product again.

like It's been almost a year since I purchased this laptop, and there's still no pen that is compatible!?!?!? I feel like I've been ripped off by HP. What kind of $1000 laptop that is convertible not come with an active pen?!?!? SO frustring!

 

Can't they just provide a firmware or something that allows the laptop to be compatible? Atleast you were able to speak to a rep that was somewhat helpful. The reps I've talked to h ave not been helpful at all but just plain rude. So disappointed with HP.
