    That's correct. I thought the pen buttons didn't do anything but I see that they are mapped to some functions. In Clip Studio, the first button is the color picker. In One Note, the first button is the right click or context menu. In both applications, the second button is the eraser.

    That alone would make it a better drawing pen since the Surface top eraser doesn't have pressure sensitivity.
    Now, if it wasn't wacom... :rolleyes:

    I thought the SP4 Stylus was expensive. This seems a bit excessive. I will probably buy one though, such a sucker for the new a shiny.

    Anyone see WHY they removed the clip from the new Surface Pen? NO MAGNET is strong enough to keep it from being jarred off the frame in a bag or walking through a crowd.

    I'll confess I'm waiting on a good head to head comparison of the new Surface Pen with the new Apple Pencil on new iPad pro. We have tips, but if the Pencil is even smoother with less latency I may be moving into the Apple camp- Which I hate- but I can MS Edition it enough I suppose with OneNote, Outlook, etc. For my slate I don't really need the power.
