    I've not used the Gosmart, but it is very similar to the Adonit Jot Pro and I use one of these everyday for inking and it works well. I would say I get performance on par to a nTrig v 2.0 with it, no where near a Wacom experience but as good or better than I had on my HP Slate 500.

    just had a response from the manufacturers

    " We have had customers that have said it worked and others that have said they have had issues where it was not consistent. The Microsoft Surface has a Capacitive Screen much like the iPad's but the issue is in the manufacturing as some iPads and Surface RT's are not all made alike and the capacitance greatly differs among all units. What I can say is this. If you decide to buy the GoSmart Stylus and it does not work for you then you are welcome to return it for a full refund. "

    So I think I am going to give it a go (when i get my surface!)

    Gosmart stylus sucks. I tried one, hated it. Super inaccurate.

    The Bamboo is useless for handwriting as it feels like writing with a big crayon that is slightly melted, I highly recommend the Adonit Jot Pro it is by far the best Capacitive Stylus I've used for inking.
