Microsoft Surface Pen | $100 $42 (opens in new tab)

The Surface Pen is an excellent accessory for your Surface tablet or PC. It supports 4,096 levels of pressure, tilt, and has an eraser on the back. You can even use it to control presentations with programmable buttons.

You can use the Surface Pen with a range of devices, including Surface Pro, Surface Go, and Surface Laptop devices. Some features, such as haptic feedback, require newer hardware, like the Surface Slim Pen 2 paired with a Surface Pro 8. But if you just use your stylus for drawing or interacting with your device, the older Surface Pen should do just fine.

The Surface Pen is available in a variety of colors, including blue, red, and silver. You can match it with other accessories, like the Surface Arc Mouse or a Type Cover.

While the Surface Pen is designed with Surface devices in mind, it can work with some other devices. It's powered by N-trig technology, which opens it up to a range of hardware.

If you order a Surface Pen, make sure to pick up some AAAA batteries. The Surface Pen is not rechargeable. You may also want to consider some replacement nibs for the pen, as the tip can wear down over time.

The current discount on the Surface Pen drops its price below or near the cost of most of the best Surface Pen and Surface Slim Pen alternatives.
