had a pen scare not too long ago myself, but i now have a better sleeve... no more problems.

FUN FACT: Galaxy Note 2 stylus works with Surface Pro :)
Any
galaxy note pens will work. I use my after market galaxy pen with the eraser function as a spare.

One of the reasons I like the Manvex case so much. Seriously, cannot for the life of me fathom what possible reason was good enough, for scuttling the idea of a pen silo. I mean, they've had at least 10 years' worth of other manufacturers' designs to look at, and see what works and what doesn't!

All I can say is, they better remedy the situation with Surface Pro 2...

Form over function. That's MS.

Weird thing is that I bought this primarily for the stylus and I find myself rarely using it. Typing is just so much faster and legible than writing. For instance, when on the phone with a client taking notes I can turn my keyboard sound off and keep up MUCH better than if I am writing with the pen. There is the added benefit that I can actually read what I wrote the next day :).

However, if I am in a client's office the pen is better as I have found that people are put off by you typing what they are saying whereas written notes doesn't bother them.

I agree with that. It's weird how typing something seems impersonal, but writing it down seems caring, or attentive, somehow.

Another thing happens, for me at least. If I write something down, I will almost always remember it, even without the note. Typing the same information does not have that same effect. Dunno why; it just works that way for me.
