Solved!

What kind of active stylus to use with HP Pavillion x360 m3 Convertible.

HP Recommended
Pavillion x360 x3 convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to get an active stylus to use with my convertible so it's easier to take notes in class as I've just figured out how to use OneNote. All the stylus' I've looked at, I can't find my specific computer on the compatibility list and I'm not sure if it matters the type of pavillion x360. Also, would I be able to have palm block while using the stylus?

Yes, the specific model matters - not all models are included.

 

First, find the computer's Model name:

HP Notebook PCs - How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?

 

Next, search the document for a compatible stylus:

Which stylus is compatible?

HP PCs - Touchscreen Compatibility with Pen and Stylus

 

If there is an HP Active Stylus available for your model, it will be included in the document.

 

Hints

  • Open the document in your browser
  • Click open both (all) categories (business and consumer) to expand the lists
  • Examine the lists to find a match to your computer model
  • Product Name contain an “m”? Consider this to be the same as the model with no “m”.
    • Example: HP Envy x360 15m-bp011dx is the same (and uses the same stylus) as HP Envy x360 15-bp011dx
  • Use CTRL-F to open the webpage search bar – type in the model type of your computer, leaving off the “HP” prefix and stopping just before OR just after the “dash” in the name. “Less is better”.
    • Example: Spectre x360 15-   or   Spectre x360  or  even just Envy x360 (no size designator)
  • If a match is found, examine the results to determine if there is a pen for your model group
    • Example: matches for Spectre x360 15 include model groups: Spectre x360 15-ap0xx, Spectre x360 15-bl0xx

NOTES

 

  • The stylus document is updated as new information becomes available
  • Correct stylus not working? Check computer’s Software and Driver Page for a relevant firmware update.

 

Passive Pen / Stylus

 

If you do not find an active pen listed for your computer, consider the "passive" pen as mentioned in the document.

Reminders:

  • Passive pen is not the same thing as an active stylus.
  • Passive pen does not act like an art pencil.
  • Passive pen does not interact with Windows Ink.
  • Passive pen can operate the desktop -- open icons, menus, activate programs.
  • Passive pen does not have a battery nor does it contain any electronics used to interface with the screen. 
  • Capacitive / Passive pen tips are "fat" to allow the pen to cover enough of the screen area to activate the "touch".  (See article below for actual terms and definitions.)
  • Use your favorite search engine -- search for "active stylus versus capacitive stylus"

      One example:
