    I have recently purchased a Microsoft Surface RT 64 GB tablet and I was unsure if any pens worked with it. I have tried searching and all have led to results about the Surface Pro.

    For the RT the Wacom Bamboo Capacitive Stylus works the best, the finer tipped one really don't work that well to be honest. It will be no where near the accuracy of the Pro line with the Active Digitizer

    The Surface RT and Surface 2 do not support the type of pen used on the Surface Pros however you can use any Capacitive Pen (Stylus) that works with an iPad or Android tablet.

    I have not used this but id try one:

    I do use this: Wacom Bamboo Solo Stylus for Kindle, Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android and Other Capacitive Touch Surfaces (CS140E)
