So. There is a pencil in this picture. It's possible to draw with it on paper. You can use a stylus to write on it on your laptop screen.

I think this is a no-brainer product when I think about it. You only need one pen to navigate your laptop screen with a stylus if you have a notebook or Post-it on your desk. It is possible to sketch out a picture, chart, or graph on paper before using a computer to do so. If you take physical notes on a text that you are reading on your computer, you can highlight parts of it. There are more scenarios where this could be useful.

I really liked theMSI Pen 2. The pressure levels for this stylus are 4096). It will last 10 hours from a five minute charge. The screen writing component was very comfortable with both a smooth stroke and excellent resistance. A video was taken here.

How do this works on the planet?

The pen has a tip made of Graphene. It is similar to mechanical pencils we used to use in fourth grade when the graphite runs out. MSI tells me that the pen has multiple refill options.

In the demo area,MSI claimed that the tip was small and light so that it wouldn't damage the screen when writing on it I didn't see anything on the screen after I demonstrated. People were coming through and writing with the thing after my appointment was late. I still believe it could be magic.

This stylus will come with a laptop from the creator Z series. The pen ships with the creator Z17 HX studio that I demoed. The new Core i9-13950HX has a whopping 24 cores, but only eight of those are performancecores, and 16 are low-powered efficiencycores. It's possible to get it with up to an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and 64 gigabytes of memory. There is a per-key keyboard with a resolution of 1920 x 1200. I think this pen is the highlight.

The release date for the Creator Z17 isn't yet decided.
