    Fairly certain that this tablet does not have Precision Plus, have it and cannot use anything but my finger to draw/write. I’m sure a stylus would work, but I was really hoping to use a pencil.

      Oh okay, bad luck. Return it & get a better tablet, maybe?

        Not sure if you’re being snide or not, but of course buying something else will always be an option. I’m just throwing it out there for anyone else potentially buying it for the same reason that I did.

          No, we genuinely said it 🙂
