Stylus for Spectre x360

[ Edited ]
Product Name: spectre x360
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, just ordered the Spectre x360 after a lot of googling around about it's active pen support.  I haven't been able to find the official "HP Active Stylus" in my country (Norway), which I've read quite a bit of negativity about anyways, however I found one named "HP Pro Tablet Active Pen" (K8P73AA) which according to a reply by an HP employee in an older thread (http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Spectre-x360-Active-Pen-Stylus-C...) is supposedly supported by the Synpatics digitizer in the x360. The official documentation however, has no mention of this. I've also read an overwhelming amount of feedback that a recent firmware update disabled the support for the Dell stylus which many apparently found success in, so this is another reason I am uncertain. Could this update have disabled the support for the other HP styluses as well? Before i go out and spend a lot of money on this pen I was wondering whether someone has tried the HP Pro Tablet Active Pen themselves on the x360, or whether any HP employee could confirm this compatibility. Again, this is the black stylus (K8P73AA) (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/tablets/product-detail.html?oid=7530365im looking at, not the silver/white one found here: http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-active-pen

The lack of synaptics-supported styluses (and documentation thereof) was almost a real deal-breaker for me since im going to use this for uni, however this was the best computer in its price segment currently so i decided to have a go at it anyways. Being able to use it with a decent stylus would make my day though! :)
