The stylus was able to connect to the laptop via wi-fi but was unable to function with the laptop. Whenever I pressed the top button of the stylus (to open up a drawing software), the stylus would just reconnect to the laptop. I also cannot draw anything with the stylus either.
This system doesn't have an active stylus compatible digitizer - it has a simple capacitive touchscreen.
You can use a capacitive stylus but not an active one (for active you need a system with an active digitizer - Surface Pro, Lenovo Yoga, XPS 9365, etc).
