    from what I've been able to google on the subject, there's so many because every button, usb, mouse, keyboard, pen, digitizer, indicator light, touch screen, etc. has its own or generic device driver.

    I still like my Elite X2 1012 G1 like mad. But the HP pen is a major fail. I got my first one exchanged in November 2016 because it did not register my pen strokes anymore. Actually it was faulty nearly from start (September) but HP needed months to send me a new one. So I bought a Bamboo Smart pen from Wacom. Worked like a dream and still does.
    When I finally got my new HP pen in November it looked like they mastered that sore quality problem and it basically did the same job like the Wacom Smart pen.
    But from February it started to miss pen strokes again. First it was just like a software glitch. It worked for a minute and it would lose a stroke. But it got worse over time.
    Remember, at the same time the Wacom pen works like a charm!

    So I think I will have to call HP again. Most probably I will get a new pen and it will deteriorate over time like the last one. To cut a long story short: If you encounter the same problem, just buy the Wacom Smart Pen. It does not provide the click button at the back. But I found out its back emulates a finger. So you can use it if your fingers are fatty from you lunch. ;-)

    The hardware maintenance guide for it in the link below, also lists a NVMe drive as an option. Whether all mainboard versions accept these, I don't know. But I would say the likelihood that it works is high.

    Well I took the gamble and purchased the Samsung 960 EVO NVMe 256GB SSD for my x2. I can tell you that it works perfectly and was actually much easier to install that I originally thought. Here are the before and after stats:

    Before - Original 128GB SATA SSD
    Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 536.597 MB/s
    Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 157.273 MB/s
    Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 224.858 MB/s [ 54897.0 IOPS]
    Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 153.636 MB/s [ 37508.8 IOPS]
    Sequential Read (T= 1) : 435.995 MB/s
    Sequential Write (T= 1) : 156.647 MB/s
    Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 30.971 MB/s [ 7561.3 IOPS]
    Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 80.076 MB/s [ 19549.8 IOPS]

    After - Samsung 256GB NVMe SSD
    Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 3215.989 MB/s
    Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1487.166 MB/s
    Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 382.005 MB/s [ 93262.9 IOPS]
    Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 165.727 MB/s [ 40460.7 IOPS]
    Sequential Read (T= 1) : 1037.230 MB/s
    Sequential Write (T= 1) : 1220.597 MB/s
    Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 42.547 MB/s [ 10387.5 IOPS]
    Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 123.401 MB/s [ 30127.2 IOPS]

    Definitely a nice improvement for small investment.
