    For anyone planning to order one as well....you have to go to HP's parts website and Chat with a customer service rep. They'll have to call you over the phone to process payment.

    The Part number on my Packing list was listed at " L03260-001" and the Description is "SPS-Pen".

    However chatting with the HP Parts rep.....he was able to find it just by the product number, which for the HP Zbook X2 is "3FB86UT#ABA"

    I was alittle worried he might accidently send me the wrong pen...one of the N-trig, AES, Amtel, Pens HP no doubt also has....but thankfully they sent me the correct pen.

    Also when I ordered it.....he said it was on Backorder and could take 3-4 weeks to get. It ended up shipping literally the next day.

    Wow! That's some dedicated stylus research you've done and now payoff. I'm impressed!

    I really like that the HP Zbook pen works on Samsung gear without offset.

    -I've got several old Penabled styli but haven't tried calibrating my N9P for them, and I probably won't for fear of losing the already perfect tuning suitable for my full-sized S Pen. While I really enjoyed my years of using Penabled pens, (they're a very comfortable, rock solid and reliable form factor for a pen, perfect for long hours of use), they don't have anywhere near the IAF of the S Pen, and I have to admit.., I've come to appreciate the feather-light response Samsung offers.

    But I'm not 100% happy with its design. It's not bad; it has a decent size and the button is fine. However.., it just feels kind of light and flimsy. I wouldn't mind something with a bit more heft. That HP Zbook pen looks like a serious art tool which isn't awkwardly over-sized.

    Good find!

    (Hrm. Anybody else notice how difficult it is to write about pens without sounding slightly pornographic? It's annoying. This is an all-ages site, after all!)

    This is great news that leaves me seriously conflicted. I hadn't realized just how much I missed my felt nibs until I went back to them. The Zbook pen will not have felt nibs, but it will have the precision I've come to expect of the s-pen.

    I wonder if I could tolerate writing with a plastic nib if the thickness and heft were right. Something to test, I guess.

    If it weren't for the Dell Canvas pen, I would be so mad that the Zbook pen wasn't for sale in the store yet. But I can wait until I don't have to jump through as many hoops.

    Does this stylus allow one to do right-hover-click-drag in Windows on a Galaxy Book?

    That's really bad that it didn't come with the device, hope they can get that sorted quickly.

    Another penabled pen is likely to work once calibrated, and the IAF is likely to be different from the stock pen, If you try newer generation pens...The new s-pen, staedler, you might have closer to stock experience.

    Which S-pen did you order? Older S-pens might not work as well as recent ones. Since the Zbook Pen has no offset and its pressure is fine on the Galaxy Book, the Reverse should also be true.....and the "Galaxy Book" S-pen should just as seamlessly work on the Zbook.

    I would hold a bit of caution on one part though.......the Galaxy Book S-pen's have the really sharp super thin nibs. At times with my Galaxy Book, it really feels more like I'm stabbing the screen with an actual tooth pick. The Zbooks nib seems to be on par with the older S-pens and Mobile Studio Pro which have more rounded ends.....in any class its still plastic nibs vs a glass screen....but since the Zbook's screen is supposed to have a special coating.....there is a slight chance the S-pen nibs....could damage the Zbooks Screen and/or coating. It should be fine....but just keep that in mind.
