No, the pen requires compatible hardware for pens, and different pens require different hardware. Surface Pen uses the Microsoft Pen Protocol, formerly N-Trig before MS bought it. Wacom has two different type of hardware, one, EMR, which uses a passively powered pen and the other, AES, which uses a powered pen. This is USI which, currently, seems to only be compatible with some current and most future Chromebooks.

edit:
I believe Samsung Galaxy Notes and Tabs use Wacom EMR as the pen doesn't use a battery. All other active stylus use battery, usually a AAAA, sometimes built in rechargeable.

of course Apple has Pencil gen 1 and 2, but I'm not sure if those are completely internal or use some other company's technology.

You might be talking about generic stylus pens that work on any touch screen, which also have two kinds: passive which rubber nubs and active which have a smaller point, but basically mimic a finger on how those touch screens work. they dont have the benefits of real digital pens like palm rejection so you can put you hand on the screen as you're writing and pressure sensitivity. or more advanced features some pens have like tilt.

I haven't looked at them all, but I believe they all are different. This one adopts the USI standard, which is now common (if not required) for Chromebooks. For those of us that jumped on the recent Lenovo Duet deals, this is the pen to get.

The 64GB model was on sale for $249 at Walmart. Bestbuy has the 128GB model for $299, and if you check back periodically, they sometimes stock open box models for around $240.

Isn't that the standard price for the 64GB version?

I thought so, but it's been out of stock at Walmart and was $289 for the 64 GB model at Lenovo. My point was simply - there were a few recent posts/deals regarding the machine. My sense is that it's selling like hotcakes. Hopefully those who need it can score a relatively inexpensive pen. Bought one for my daughter for her to use during school.

If they support USI - yes. And a quick search indicates that HP x360 models 12b and 14b support USI.

If the device don't support USI, will this pen at least work as a normal Stylus pen on device like Galaxy Tab or Galaxy phones or other touch screen laptop?
