    I know this is just a minor thing, but Im not a fan of purple. The stylus has a purple top, and I don't like it.
    I saw it in one of the videos on youtube with an orange top of the stylus. Are they gonna come out with different colors?
    I want red to match with the keyboard.

    im trying to find that video on youtube where someone had it in orange.

    Hmm not sure. It is purple because it's the One Note button from what I understand. So it makes sense to match the One Note color. But an option of a different color would be nice.

    I swear I saw an orange top. I ignored it then but now I realized they haven't mentioned any other colors.

    Pen is not a Wacom pen, so it requires batteries for two things: the digitizer itself to track pen motion, and to power the top button which communicates to the Surface using low power Bluetooth when you push the button.

    Hope that helps.
