I think (and hope) that you are inferring more from this information than HP intended to communicate. The description of the problem is quite specific; The pen acts erretically near the screen edge. The problems that have come up again and again on this forum include: The pen skips ink The controller switches to touch while the pen is in contact with or near the screen The position of the pen changes rapidly while inking and causes spikes. While solving these problems may have a positive effect on the one listed by HP, I don't think that this necessarily means that HP has closed its investigation on N-trig issues on the Slate. I also think that one would notice these issues on all Slates. If you are interested in checking your Slate, switch to Dual Mode and try to ink with the pen. This mode should work without flaw.
