I currently have an $10 Acase stylus from amazon. It works rather well, except that it is a little too thin and short for me. I also don't quite like that I have to apply some pressure to register a touch to the screen. I'm thinking about getting a new stylus have set my mind on an Alupen and a Bamboo stylus. The Bamboo stylus seems long enough for me and is receiving very favorable reviews. However it is quite a bit more expensive and out of stock everywhere. The Alupen provides a better grip but looks shorter than the Bamboo stylus. Some say the Alupen is better for hand writing because it is shaped similar to a permanent marker, since writing on the screen is just like writing on a white board. The Alupen also doesn't have a clip which is more of a hassle to carry around. By the way I need the stylus just to write notes. I don't draw. Which one will better suit my need?
