    Hi everybody.
    I have a question. How do I know it's time to change the tip of my pen?
    I'm using it since I bought my M700 last September, and for the moment the tip looks round and not used, but these last weeks the pen is leaving many traces on the screen (easily cleaned).
    Thanks for your comments.
    And by the way, HAPPY 2009:)

    When it starts to scratch the display more often then it's time to change the pen tip, because then the surface of the pen tip is rough and smudge gets easily between the pen tip and the display.

    Change it when the tip is starting to drag or skip and writing requires a little more force to overcome resistance. Because writing is such a common and intuitive thing, you'll know when it just doesn't feel the same.

    Thank you guys.

    I've changed it, and the traces are gone.
    I suppose that five or six months, depending on the use you give to it, is a normal life-time period for the pen tip.
