Best answer: No, Microsoft's Surface Slim Pen will not work with all touch-screen PCs. You'll only be able to use the Surface Slim Pen if your device supports N-trig.

Support for N-trig

Microsoft's styli are mostly powered by N-trig technology, including the latest Surface Slim Pen. This means the stylus will only work with hardware that supports the same technology. If your device does not support N-trig, the touch-screen will not play ball. Luckily, numerous products support N-trig, so be sure to check your device specifications before making the purchase.

For Surface hardware, the new Slim Pen supports:

  • Surface Book
  • Surface Book 2
  • Surface Studio
  • Surface Studio 2
  • Surface Laptop
  • Surface Laptop 2
  • Surface Laptop 3
  • Surface Go
  • Surface Pro 3
  • Surface Pro 4
  • Surface Pro 5th Gen
  • Surface Pro 6
  • Surface Pro 7
  • Surface 3

The new Slim Pen is a redesign of the classic Surface stylus, featuring a flat side to help it fit into a cradle, and even includes wireless charging. If you own the new Surface Pro X, you can also place it in the cradle above the keyboard to keep it topped up on the go. It's a great companion accessory for any Surface owner who enjoys doing a little doodling or serious creative work.
