    I think you'll like the MatePen then. The drag of the tip on the Dell's glass definitely feels closer to a marker than to a ballpoint.

    One last thing before I order one:. Do the buttons work? Programmable? Or is it one locked to erase and the other on right click?

    Anyone know where/if you can purchase another charger for the Matebook? It doesn't seem to work with any of my other USB C chargers...

    Phone USB-C chargers generally won't work with PCs (insufficient output to replace a 45 watt charger). Try the 12" MacBook charger, it works.

    Yeah, there's USB-C (5V/3A) and then there's also USB-C Power Delivery (which supports higher voltages).

    Personally, I wouldn't buy the MacBook one, but it's up to you. While it sounds like it'll work for the Matebook, it's kind of limited in that it only does a weird voltage/amperage combination (14.5V, 2A in addition to 5V, 2.4A). For future-proofing with other potential USB-C PD devices you might buy, something more universal might make more sense.

    Google's Universal charger does 5V/3A, 12V/3A, and 20V/3A which should in theory be far more compatible with future devices.
    Innergie also has one that does 5V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A (which I don't know for sure but assume is for MacBook compatibility), and 20V/2.25A (though it is a larger brick than Google's).

    Personally, what I really want is a version of Google's universal charger which has a second 5V/3A port for my phone in addition to its USB-PD port, but I guess it's still too early for that.

    I think it is great that bigger pen-abled tablets are planned. While I don't like the Matebook because of that in my opinion horrible keyboard/stand, I hope those bigger ones would be successful so we might get more option in bigger sizes.
