Does HP Spectre Folio 13 come with a digital pen?

Best answer: The HP Spectre Folio comes with a stylus as standard. The HP Tilt Pen is a great stylus for doodling, note-taking, and even more serious design work.HP: HP Spectre Folio 13 (opens in new tab) ($1,300+)HP: HP Tilt Pen (opens in new tab) ($80)

HP Spectre Folio and its Tilt Pen

Since the HP Spectre Folio supports the use of a stylus, HP opted to include the company's own Tilt Pen. This stylus utilizes Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP) and N-Trig technology, giving you full tilt support for shading with Windows Ink. This is further aided by 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, making it quite the compelling accessory if you want to do some digital inking.

If all that wasn't enough, HP made the Tilt Pen rechargeable, and the eraser button on top can be set to do whatever you want it to (it's an eraser, but it's also a grenade button). This also means you don't need to purchase an additional stylus, but if you happen to not be a fan of the Tilt Pen from HP, there are alternatives available for the Spectre Folio, such as the Wacom Bamboo Ink (opens in new tab).

The Spectre Folio can be configured to be Wi-Fi only or come rocking support for LTE. It's also able to house an Intel Core i7 processor, depending on just how much you wish to spend on the notebook. Regardless of how you configure the Spectre Folio 13, you'll be able to doodle away without issue.
