    I use the pen of the Galaxy Note 10' 2014, and it works perfectly. Though I prefer the original S-pen of the GB12 (the one with metallic clip, not to be confused with the one of the GB10 that has plastic clip). You can find it listed as S-pen for the Galaxy Tab 3.

    I know you're asking for a Cheap Pen.....but those Silo'd S-pens from the Note 10.1 and Tab A will serve as a poor replacement for the staedtler pencil. I would highly recommend splurging a bit and getting the HP Zbook X2 pen. Works great with the Galaxy Book line, I use it exclusivly with my Galaxy Book 10.6 It has a Cintiq styled composition so it feels like a premium pen, its long and comfy to hold, it has a single side swtich, and it has a backend eraser which will work with the Galaxy Book. It also uses the older more roundish nibs...not the supper thin tooth pick nibs from the Staedtler and recent S-pens. (which in my opinon makes it way more comfy)

    I didn't have time to test much except a bit of browsing, but it seemed to work well. The display was running at 30Hz though, but that's probably because of my dock. I do not think it will have any trouble even at 60Hz. Which IDE do you want me to test? I can test it the next time I have access to the display.

    @darkmagistric What does the side button of the HP pen do on the GB? Does it still just erase, or will it work as a second button?

    It functions the same as the side button on the Samsung S-pens.

    Anyone has succeeded installing Android in dual boot in partition of the ssd, or in microsd?
    I watched prime os, version of android. It would be very good if we could dual boot it..
