Any compatible stylus with Inspiron 15 7000 (7558)?

I have a Dell inspiron 15 7000 FHD (7558)  and I was wondering if the Dell active pen works with my device. Or what other stylus can I use??.

I bought the Adonit Jot Pro which is a passive pen, but it didn't work at all.

Thanks

It depends on what you want from the system.  This is a touchscreen system - it's not a digitized-screen system, so any stylus will simply serve as a stand-in for your finger.  It's not going to add handwriting or drawing to the system -- for that you need something like a Surface Pro 4, Thinkpad Helix or X1 Tablet, or a Yoga Pro -- so far Dell hasn't entered that marketplace, and it's a market that starts near the $1K price point and rises quickly above it -- you're just not going to find a true tablet system under that price, largely due to the cost of a digitizing screen.

If you just need a simple stand-in for your finger touch to keep the screen clean, something like this will work:

If you're looking for the functionality of a digitizer, you have the wrong system.
