    Yes, I did that but absolutely nothing happened.

    Soo, I installed a major upgrade today. A total of 17. Seems that included Pen support. Under Pen and Touch I now have options for Pen usage. Obviously I immediately tried to use my HP Executive Pen. I have to say that as a navigational toll it seems much more stable, but as a writing and drawing tool the improvements are somewhere between minuscule and dismal. But I will try and take this as a positive sign that we are on a path to improving the usage of a stylus with the Envy x2.

    I really would like to know why HP took the risk to not use a wacom pen on its tablet!
    It was the same with the Slate!

    My guess is they were offered a cheaper solution but with the same or better specs than Wacom, perhaps a one price deal rather than royalties? Nothing wrong with new companies entering the market, but off course they aren't used to the discrepancy between a working lab model and a fully functional production line. Things get lost from point A to B.

    HP does not have any stylus for Envy X2 and it is a shame because they have been promising that stylus will be available by June or July 2013. I bought the Envy only because I thought stylus will be available but, I am convinced-based on my phone call and chats with HP- there will not be a stylus for Envy X2.

    Is the general consensus that mbs165 is correct?

    Grrrrrr.....

    I bought one of these puppies for my boyfriend because he likes to draw and I thought this would be good for him to draw every once in a while on. He currently uses it for school. I was really hoping HP would come out with an active stylus for this in time for me to get him one for the holidays. Fingers still crossed for it.

    They have declared that a stylus will be available, just not when.
