    First off I know that Surface RT does not have the same stylus support as Surface Pro. However, has anyone used a stylus on their RT? How well does it work, especially with tasks like taking notes in OneNote?

    This is probably the only factor holding me back from purchasing a surface tablet

    The stylus use is subpar. Its not really comparable to wacom, but it gets the job done. In comparison to what I've seen with the pro, you have to slow down and focus on what you're writing. This is due to the fact that it lacks a digitizer. But like I said, its possible.

    I have the Jot Pro. Its fairly good, I had a stick stylus but it sucked. I can atleast take notes now (And do some quick design work)
    Though there is no palm rejection so you need a glove/sleeve to draw comfortably

    The digitizer and the Surface Pros Wacom pen are about the only thing I wish my Surface RT had.

    I use one of those big, fat Targus stylus' on my RT in OneNote. Once you get used to it, it works pretty well. Those Jot Pro's would be so much better though.

    I don't have a Surface RT, so I'm not sure how it will translate over, but I use this stylus on my Lenovo Yoga, Nexus 7, and iPad. It's been the best stylus that I've used so far. The included pen is kind of meh, but the stylus portion is excellent. The reviews are excellent, and deservedly so.

    I did a review on the jot pro with the surface RT here: Using a Jot Pro Stylus with Windows RT on a Surface Tablet

    It works well, not as good as a Wacom but better than the salami stylus you can get.

    Because of this review I got this stylus and it works very well!
