Notebookcheck's Top 10 Stylus Convertibles

April 2020 update. Here you will find the best convertibles for pen/stylus inputs reviewed by Notebookcheck in the last few months. Our list of top models is regularly updated, maintained and commented on and should assist in purchasing decisions.
Florian Schmitt, 👁 Florian Schmitt, Felicitas Krohn (translated by Andreas Osthoff),

Convertibles are very versatile devices and can be used as traditional notebooks with all the advantages like a conventional keyboard, and also as tablets thanks to the integrated touchscreen. All these device also support active input pens for graphics designers and artists. The following ranking lists all modern convertible PCs, which can be used with active input pens.

Note: We did not use the (subjective) quality of the stylus or the input pen, respectively, for the following ranking, but only criteria we can judge objectively by our authors and measurements. These are the following: Performance headroom for applications, display quality, and sound. The information about the input pens can also be found in each individual review.

Please feel free to comment below if you have made experiences with the listed devices and especially the input pens to give additional help for other users.

Editors' Comments

Our ranking includes laptop convertibles as well as notebooks with 360-degree hinges and Windows tablets with additional keyboard docks. It is your choice which device you prefer. We notice that some convertibles still uses Intel's Kaby Lake dual-core processors. Devices with the latest quad-core Kaby Lake Refresh chips (KBL-R) often suffer from a performance drop under sustained workloads or the performance is worse than expected even in short peak load scenarios. This should be taken into account, especially if you plan to perform more complex tasks like video editing. Most of the following device are pleasantly quiet. Please refer to the original reviews if the battery runtime is important for you.

The situation is tricky when it comes to the scope of delivery in terms of the pen. You should definitely ask the manufacturer whether it is included or not if there are any doubts. Then there is the issue with the features of the pen; some of the manufacturers could not answer our question about the support of "pen-tilt", for example. The same applies for the support of third-party pens.

1st - HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5

HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5
HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5

We really liked the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5 in our review:

If you are looking for the ultimate Windows convertible for frequent travelers, this EliteBook is very close.

Thunderbolt 3, LTE support and a very bright screen: The convertible offers many advantages. However, it is also equipped with a Kaby Lake CPU and like we said in the introduction, Intel's modern CPUs often suffer from weak Turbo Boost utilization. This is also the case here, even though we can only speak for the tested Intel Core i7-8650U, where the fan was also audible at a high frequency. You will also have to live with a grainy screen if you select the matte screen.

However, this shows another advantage of the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G5: There are numerous hardware combinations you can choose from, so almost every user and every budget should find the right model.

HP Rechargeable Active Pen

This convertible uses HP's Rechargeable Active Pen, which can also be purchased separately. HP charges about 130 Euros. It can be charged via USB, and the power adapter of the convertible works as well. There are the buttons at the side, an LED indicator for the battery charge, and a magnet, so you can attach the pen to the convertible. Bluetooth is included as well, so compatible apps can be controlled via stylus to a certain extent. The Active Pen supports 4096 pressure levels.

2nd – Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Not too many things seem to have changed. The Surface Pro 7 features the same display as the two-year old Surface Pro 5 and offers the same level of performance as the Surface Pro 6. The only real update worth mentioning are the USB-C port and the new GPU options.

Nevertheless, the Surface Pro 7 remains one of the best Windows tablets. It comes with a fast SSD, good battery life, Wi-Fi 6, and passive and thus completely silent cooling. On the flip side it lacks an LTE option, GPS, and support for Thunderbolt 3.

The Microsoft Surface Pen is included in the box.

The Surface Pen supports 4.096 levels of pressure sensitivity and communicates with its host device via Bluetooth 4.0. It features a button and an eraser as well. The pen can detect tilt and thus for example implement various levels of shading. It is available in various colors matching the main device.

At 20 g and a diameter of 97 mm it is comparable to other active stylus pens.

3rd – Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1

Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1
Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1

For the XPS 13 convertible Dell took a deep sip from the cup of innovation and offers a MagLev keyboard, vapor-chamber cooling, and GORE isolation for the first time. In addition, the 16:10 display offers a rather uncommon display ratio. Speaking of which, the display is Dell’s masterpiece. It is very well calibrated and can get so bright that the XPS 13 is even usable for professional use outdoors.

The good-looking case is fairly light, offers two Thunderbolt 3 ports with Power Delivery, and a long battery life. We liked both keyboard and speakers, and the microSD card slot turned out to be fairly fast to boot. A downside for some might be the non-upgradeable RAM as well as the lack of features such as an LTE option or NFC.

All things considered the Dell XPS 7390 2-in-1 remains a very interesting and attractive device if you happen to be looking for a powerful computer in a small case and don’t mind sacrificing a few features along the way. Its excellent display makes this a perfect device for professional photo editing on the go.

Dell Premium Active Pen

The Dell Premium Active Pen has a magnetic side that attaches to compatible convertibles. It connects via Bluetooth 4.2 and supports various protocols, such as MPP 1.51 (Microsoft Pen Protocol), Wacom AES 1.0, and even the latest Wacom AES 2.0 technology. Thanks to Windows Ink Workspace you can configure its three buttons to your liking. It offers 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and a sampling rate of 240 Hz. According to Dell, the battery is supposed to last for up to 12 months and it is even replaceable. As are of course the tips.

4th – Lenovo Yoga C940

Lenovo Yoga C940
Lenovo Yoga C940

The successor to Lenovo’s Yoga C930 offers brand-new Ice Lake CPUs in the same case as before. Thus, the convertible might even be interesting for games with low demands and expectations. In addition, emissions have been reduced significantly while performance increased at the same time. And last but not least the display is much brighter than before.

On the flip side maintenance is very complicated, as is quite common on many convertibles, and we would have preferred more ports. Its high-quality case, its long battery life, and the included stylus pen turn the C940 into a very well-made and interesting convertible.

Lenovo Active Pen 2

Included in the box is Lenovo’s Active Pen 2 that can also be purchased retroactively for between $60 and $80. It weighs 20 g, has a diameter of 95 mm, and a total length of 153 mm. Its only source of energy is a replaceable AAAA battery, and it communicates via Bluetooth. Like the Surface Pen it supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity as well as tilt detection. Furthermore, Lenovo promises palm detection and includes three buttons, two on the thumb side and one at the tip of the device. The stylus can be stored and charged safely inside the convertible.

5th – Asus ZenBook Flip 15

Asus ZenBook Flip 15
Asus ZenBook Flip 15

Depending on configuration the i5 SKU of the Asus ZenBook Flip 15 can already be had for significantly under $1,000.

For that you get a Pantone-certified high-quality convertible in a robust metal case with good performance, very long battery life, low emissions, a backlit keyboard, and support for stylus input. All this sounds like a device that should cost much more than $1,000. The higher-tier SKUs are even capable of gaming, to a certain degree.

The only thing missing to make this a perfect device is a Thunderbolt 3 port and a secondary slot for storage expansion. Nevertheless, the ZenBook Flip 15 turned out to be a great device.

Asus Active Stylus SA200H

Asus Active Stylus SA200H

At just 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity the Asus Active Stylus SA200H is not as sensitive as its competitors, which could be a major problem for professional users. It offers two buttons preconfigured to act as primary mouse button and eraser. A regular battery ensures that restoring the pen’s full functionality should the battery be drained, and dead is a matter of seconds. The pen does not support Bluetooth.

6th – HP Spectre x360 13

HP Spectre x360 13
HP Spectre x360 13

HP’s Spectre x360 13 13-inch convertible based on Intel’s 10th generation Core processors is unmistakably a high-end convertible. You can already tell simply by holding it in your hands. The light-weight aluminum case feels incredibly premium and robust. The display bezels are very narrow, the display itself is very bright, and the keyboard offers adequate feedback. HP’s convertible also offers a microSD slot, plenty of ports, a long battery life of up to 10 hours in our Wi-Fi test, and is even available with a WWAN modem.

If we had two wishes it would be better upgradeability and a better calibrated display. It lacks an HDMI port, and CPU performance fluctuates more than on other similarly priced convertibles.

The HP Spectre x360 13 is not without its flaws but remains a premium convertible with stylus support.

Nevertheless, the HP Spectre x360 13 remains a great device with superb functionality. If you want the stylus pen you can opt for a package deal. By default, the device is sold without the stylus.

HP Tilt Pen

The HP Tilt Pen will cost you an extra $70. At 14.5 g it is very light and offers both tilt and pressure detection, the latter with up to 4,096 levels of sensitivity. HP promises a 10-hour battery life, and the pen is recharged via a USB-C port. It offers two buttons and a configurable Bluetooth button. In addition, it can be used as presentation remote.

7th – Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15

Microsoft’s Surface Laptops tend to be very attractive but also on the expensive side. Unfortunately, the new 15-inch model is no exception, and instead of offering ports it requires dongles and an optional dock that will cost extra. Don’t expect Wi-Fi 6, LTE, a fingerprint reader, or a slider cover for the webcam either.

Our particular SKU of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15 was equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU that offered more than adequate CPU and GPU performance. The 15-inch touchscreen display worked very well although it requires calibration for professional use.

Its decent build quality and improved maintainability when compared to its predecessor combined with an almost always silent operation render the Surface Laptop 3 15 very attractive if you can and want to afford it.

8th - Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is the high-end convertible option in Lenovo's business lineup and the prices are around 2000 Euros for the current generation (G3). SKUs include modern Intel i5 and i7 processors (quad-core KBL-R), 8-16 GB RAM and up to 1 TB SSD storage. All models currently on offer in Germany are equipped with an LTE module, NFC support, and a stylus by default. The latter can even be stored inside the chassis. A big difference compared to rivals like the Surface Pro: The Yoga is a notebook platform with a 360-degrees hinge. The tablet mode is realized by folding back the display.

The Yoga with the i5/i7 quad-core CPUs (8250U/8550U) from Intel's Kaby Lake-Refresh generation is a very powerful platform, even though you have to expect a performance reduction after a few minutes, similar to many other slim devices (see our reviews for the X1 Yoga 2018 Full-HD with i5 CPU and ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018 with i7 CPU). Compared to the previous dual-core models, which are still used in the Surface Pro, you still get about double the performance in multi-thread scenarios.

Lenovo offers two different displays: The 1080p version is not very bright at 240 nits on average in combination with a good maximum contrast of ~1000:1, 86% sRGB gamut and imperfect colors. The top model with the WQHD HDR panel is much better with more than 500 nits and a contrast ratio of 1800:1. It also features wide color gamut (100% sRGB, 89% AdobeRGB) and can be well-calibrated (average DeltaE <0.9).

The Yoga X1 2018 can also convince in terms of system noise. Despite the high performance, the convertible is usually silent during office tasks, and it is never more than a subtle murmur in the background under load. More details are available in our reviews of the two SKUs.

Lenovo ThinkPad Pen Pro 2

Lenovo ThinkPad Pen Pro 2 for the Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2018

The ThinkPad Pen is often included when you buy the X1 Yoga, but it can also be purchased separately for about 40 Euros. Lenovo lists a weight of 5-10 grams with a diameter of 6.5 millimeters and a length of 127 mm. The Pen Pro does not use a replaceable battery cell, but an integrated battery. The pen is charged by the notebook/convertible once inserted into the case. Lenovo claims one charge will suffice for up to 130 minutes of active use.

The ThinkPad Pen Pro 2 supports 2048 pressure levels according to the manufacturer. However, there is no support for an adjusted input when you tilt the pen. The pen has two buttons in the area of the thumb (left and right click).

Lenovo Active Pen 2

Professional alternative: Lenovo Active Pen 2
Professional alternative: Lenovo Active Pen 2

The Active Pen is an alternative to the integrated ThinkPad Pen. It retails for 80 Euros (RRP), but it is already available for 50-60 Euros in shops. It weighs about 20 grams, has a diameter of 0.95 cm and a length of 15.3 cm. The power supply is handled by a single and replaceable AAAA-battery and it communicates with the device via Bluetooth.
Similar to the Surface Pen, it supports 4096 pressure levels and the pen recognizes when you tilt it. It also supports palm recognition and features a total of three buttons; two at the side in the area of the thumb and one at the top of the pen. The scope of delivery includes three replacement tips and a clip that can be attached to a USB-A port (no additional features).

Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1
Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1

The Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 turned out to be a hot mess, at least in the configuration reviewed by us as the Core i7 got uncomfortably hot under load, which furthermore reduced the device’s performance. The display was highly reflective and not bright enough for extended used outdoors.

In return, the device offers narrow bezels, a good-looking case, excellent battery life, and decent speakers. We also liked its input devices save for the clickpad’s buttons, but that’s certainly a matter of taste. The Core i5 processor should offer a much cooler experience and opting for this SKU will give you a very high-quality convertible.

Dell Latitude 13 5300 2-in-1

Dell’s Latitude 13 5300 is a great alternative to Lenovo’s ThinkPad X390 Yoga. Equipped with a fast yet efficient Core i5-8365U processor it offers decent performance with no major thermal throttling issues to report.

Also included are Thunderbolt 3, a fast microSD card reader, and an optional WWAN modem. Easy maintenance is also a plus, but that is also true for the ThinkPad X390 Yoga. Battery life is not bad either, and with 10:30 hours in our Wi-Fi test the Latitude 13 5300 even outran the ThinkPad X390 Yoga and should thus easily last for an extended workday.

The stylus support turns this convertible into a notebook. Keep in mind though that the stylus pen has to be purchased separately for most SKUs. Unfortunately, the display turned out to be too dim and both colors and grayscale were highly inaccurate out of the box.

If you opt for the Dell Latitude 13 5300 you get good device that works great both at home and in the office.
