    It's funny, there's a pencil out there without an eraser, he cracks (iPad Pro shot).

    Having used the Surface Pro 3 pen, it's pretty good -- not perfect (which I define as real-time, lag-free response).

    The Surface Pro 4's pen lasts a full year.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:05:05 PM
    Surface Pen: has an eraser. And now a "pencil doesn't have an eraser" joke. But pens...don't have erasers, usually.

    The ink "flows" out of the pen like a real one, he says.
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 3:05:31 PM
    A lot of illustrators and animators are interested in the Surface and its pen, from the convos I've had.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:05:59 PM
    Pen battery lasts year. Wonder how that's measured. BT keyboards usually last me forever.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:06:06 PM
    Storing a pen is hard, he says. So the pen attaches to the Surface Pro 4.

    Magnetically. It's pen storage.

  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:06:30 PM
    When you click the pen, One Note pops up.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:06:32 PM
    finally, a place to put the pen!
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 3:06:35 PM
    Magnetic attachment for the pen? Good idea. The little plastic loop on the keyboard on SP3 was an odd fit.

    The idea of a virtual eraser on this pen is pretty genius. Very intuitive.
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 3:07:07 PM
    The problem with all these demos is that they use OneNote, which I swear I can never figure out how to use properly.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 3:07:20 PM
    "I can ink on it." Is that the term?
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:07:21 PM
    If you hold down your pen, you can call up Cortana.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:07:55 PM
    With the Edge browser, you can write on the web with pen.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:08:05 PM
    He notes it's connected to his Lumia 950.
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 3:08:09 PM
    Using the pen with the browser markup in Edge is very cool -- it's my fave Edge browser feature.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:08:20 PM
    Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom are all Pen-enabled, he says.

    More pen-enabled apps...pretty key. And the thing iPad Pro will need to deal with, too.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 3:09:13 PM
    Panay says the G5 chipset allows the pen to work with the display like an actual pen. But it can be transformed from ink to digital content, he says.

    Pen for music notation. That's pretty nice.
