    Hey guys, bit of newbie here.. I recently bought one of the new Dell Inspirons with the pen technology but mine, however, didn't come with one. I've been searching the internet for hours trying to find one that's compatible with the i5 15-7975 but haven't had any luck. I came across the wacom pens but I don't know which one would be compatible with my laptop. Any advice and options for pens would be helpful. Thanks!!

    You have to go to Device Manager and have a look at Mouse and HID devices. If there is a HID input mouse, then look for digitizer name, The above is from my Cube Mix Plus. I want to buy an imported 7568 here but they don't allow me to check this before hand so I am stuck with 10.6 in real-estate

    To my knowledge, the 7568 is the only model which supports Wacom AES. Any other model number does not.

    However, I've not run across any indication that the 7568 will *not* work with the Wacom pen, (unless it's damaged).

    My own personal experience with this computer was spotty; it had other hardware bugs which one or two others on the web also reported. (The pen stopped working when the computer was in tablet-mode.) That, combined with the fact that AES is a so-so technology left me unable to strongly recommend this model.

    In this case, I got what I paid for.

    Thank you for your sharing. How ever for new bee, I think, Wacom AES is suitable. As you see for this specific model there are 53 pages of opinion from veteran to newcomer mixed.

    Well, I got a lot of decent work done on it, and other than the bugs, it really performed. (I replaced the spinner in it with an SSD, and that made Windows startup times around 11 seconds, and it flew easily through most tasks).

    Mainly, it was a pleasure to have something with real battery life, CPU power and good build qualities. The screen is excellent! -Unlike my previous and very old Tablet PC, I found myself using the Dell a lot more often and easily; it fit perfectly into my backpack. My older computer is too clunky and heavy for quick use, and with a poor battery life, I'm always tethered. I still use it a lot, but mostly in situations where I can set up at a desk. The Dell and these newer, lighter tablet models are greatly improved in terms of portable use and I really noticed the difference.

    Most people didn't have any trouble with the 7568, so if you get a properly working one and you don't mind the AES, it ought to serve well.

    Thanks for the help. Turns out my laptop doesn't have these, if I knew this I wouldn't have bought it. Any good options for non-software driven pens?

    Thanks for your encouragement, unluckily almost all 7568 sellers in my area responses positively with the above captured Screen shot :(

    It seems as Wacom release some decent passive pen but I don't have access to them in my area. My only experience with capacitive pen is about Adonit Jot Pro. You should have a try with it before buying. It costs around 40$

    Hi,

    Need some help in figuring out what pen is appropriate for the system I bought. I just got the new Dell Inspiron 13 2 in 1 that is advertised to have pen support.

    http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/cty/pdp/spd/inspiron-13-7373-2-in-1-laptop?~ck=mn

    The pen they advertise as being compatible:

    http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-active-pen-pn338m/apd/750-aavj/handhelds-tablet-pcs

    All reviews on the page basically point out that the pen is not compatible with the new Inspiron line or that it does not work at all! So a bit confused.

    Went into Device Manager as per suggestions and only able to see "HID Compliant Pen" and "Microsoft Input Configuration Device" and "HID Compliant Mouse".

    So does that mean Wacom AES is not compatible with my device? And it's only MPP? Is there an easy way to find out what is compatible with my touch screen? I was looking at the Wacom Bamboo Ink as a possibility but wanted to see what others with a lot more experience think!

    I guess it is N-trig
    It is a good news that more and more ordinary devices with digitizer panel got released
