I’m a big fan of the Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet: the little device that runs Windows 8.1. If I had a complaint, it would be that the (optional) stylus wasn’t very good. It was ok for pointing as a mouse, but no use for hand writing in OneNote, and in apps like Fresh Paint, it was completely useless.
I’ve seen some links on websites which suggest taking the stylus apart to tweak it, but what made the most difference for me – and transformed it into something that actually works! – was running the My Dell app to find the latest Driver updates. A few updates were released in the past few weeks which have made a huge difference to the stylus performance, so if you have one of those great little tablets, be certain to update it!
