    Out of curiosity I thought I would try the Apple Pencil on this old Sony micro PC i had laying around. To my surprise, it works. It even recognized and converted my handwritten text. This PC is 10 year old tech! sony-vaio-vgn-ux280p.jpg

    Probably because it uses a resistive touch screen. I also used my Pencil on Nintendo DS, works like a charm.

    Yup. A stick off a tree would work as well.

    On my father's Lumia 820 it worked too (with Lumia 640 not!), but only as "pointer" so no pressure-sensitivity and other features from Apple Pencil.
