I just the hp slate 7 extreme and was happy with it at first. But I started inking a lot on it felt sluggish. I loved LectureNotes on my note 2,but kinda sucks here. I tried several others but I'm not really content.
I think I'll return it. Stylus idea is kinda similar to Miix 2 stylus, capacitive. Honestly, the surface was awesome for stylus and onenote. But returned for other reasons. One extra point is that 7" is a bit small but can live with it, would prefer an 8".

This one is a 4:3 tablet just like the iPad Mini.

Stili are cheap, get one separate from the device, not like you really need one
