    The XPS 11 was promoted since June to feature "an Active Stylus [that] lets you takes notes on this thin and lightweight tablet for pinpoint accuracy and better productivity". Unfortunately after several calls to Dell technical support, I was able to confirm that this device does not support an Active Stylus. I suppose that Dell removed this capability when finalizing the launch specifications.

    I bought this device instead of the Lenovo Yoga because of the Stylus. Without it, the no-travel touch keyboard is too much of a compromise to recommend this device, which is why I'm returning it. Typing is very cumbersome and error-prone, and although you can improve with time, it will never be a pleasant experience. Some have said that the Lenovo Yoga keyboard feels awkward when in tablet mode, but I'd accept that in order to have an efficient keyboard when in laptop mode.

    I have a Dell XPS 11 and I love it.
    According to my chat with the dell the active stylus DOES work with the XPS 11. The very latest promotion video shows the the pen in use. The pc settings also confirm Touch and Pen support.

    Copy of my chat with Dell.
