    My wife is looking for a fine-tipped stylus (similar tip to the Surface Pro 3 Pen) for her Surface 2 (regular Surface 2, not Pro). All we were able to find at our local Best Buy were thick finger-tip iPad style styluses, besides the Surface Pro 3 Pen; which does not work with it.

    Any ideas on what we need to buy? She's wanting to do artwork with Fresh Paint, but wants a finer tipped stylus than the thick-tipped iPhone style. Thanks!

    There isn't really one, the Surface 2 is tuned to support the traditional rubber tipped Capacitive Stylus. The Wacom Bamboo Capacitive Stylus Gen 2 is the thinnest that works ok....

    Check out Adonit Jot (Pro). It has a tip like a sharpened pencil. It looks a little strange but works great. Any time I need to go sign something, (usually on a iPad), at the AT&T store I take it with me and several staff people have bought their own.

    The strange thing is the Adonit Jot Pro worked great on the Surface RT but on the Surface 2 Capacitive Screen it didn't work well. I invested well over $200 on different Stylus for The Surface 2 and the Bamboo worked the best....
