    Your options will be very limited for under $10.

    I mainly want to use it for typing and playing games ect. I dont use my tablet that much for note taking, like you prompted, but I would just like to get my "simpleton's" use from it without so many fingerprints.

    Depends upon what you plan on using the stylus for.

    I have 2 styli that I use. For general doodling and tap-typing, I use a cheapo rubber tip stylus. For more accurate control, I use an Adonit Jot. $15 @Walmart. Wonderful stylus.

    Just be sure it's felt-tipped. The rubber ones sometimes feel like they're jerking along if you're trying to write.

    I've heard this before, like those cheap ones on amazon, a ten pack for 99 cents... figured that had to be a ton of junk, or at least low quality. I will look more into the felt tipped ones...anyone have any favorites about those? lol

    Don't know what DShap5 means with felt, allow me to refer to microfiber.
    You could take a look at http://www.ifaraday.com and http://www.lynktec.com.
    I'm using a Lynktec TruGlide Pro, that I really like a lot for both writing and drawing.

    Those look pretty cool. And that's a good price for 6 of them. And also, since I have everyone's attention, I'm new here, and I'm assuming OP means newbie or "question-asker"------What does OP stand for? Just curious.

    Not sure how good they are, but Best Buy's Deal of the day has styluses on sale for $2.99 normally $7.99. They are Rocketfish branded, so I'm not sure how good they are.

    The brand shouldn't matter on those type, they are all pretty much the same. I have one that looks just like it that I think was from Belkin.

    Okay, so there are a lot of stylus's out there... and they all vary in price. I think that the "best" option is to buy at least two- one for general use, and one that has a finer point for highlighting words in a kindle app.

    In regards to a stylus that I enjoy, I have an ampen stylus that I use really often. It has a felt-tip, I think it is called, and I have some replacement tips too. It is so much better than the other like three kinds that I've had over the course of the past four or five years.

    I know this thread has been dead for a little while, but in case anyone is still subscribed, I have found that the best stylus out of a few that I've ordered is the amPen stylus.
    It writes very well, and it is amazingly smooth for scrolling. It is very accurate, and you can order replaceable tips. Awesome stylus, and an awesome price.

    I have a Targus one that cost $15.00. I also have some that I picked up at a dollar store ($1 each) and others that cost $2-5 each. The cheaper ones work well for me. One of my nieces likes to use a stylus for drawing on my iPad, but is hard on them. $1 is not a big loss.
