The Gateway® convertible notebook's pen is the only device that can write, tap, and input directly on your convertible notebook's display. The pen can do everything a mouse does. Just think "tap" instead of "click".
Caution: Do not strike the display too sharply. Although the display is durable, it can break.
Note: A finger-tap or PDA stylus has no effect on this convertible notebook's display, and ink pens and other pointed objects could damage the surface.
Always use the pen that came with your convertible notebook.
Note: The battery in this pen is not replaceable.
