The duo is a capacitive screen so no stylus unless you buy a third party stylus like the sausage stylus or the O-stylus ( oStylus - Capacitive Drawing Stylus ) Engadget puts the latter in high praise as a great capacitive stylus.

Hi, new to the forum.
I totally agree with the above comments with the short comings of this machine. As a pro illustrator and animator I find the wacom tablet approach the best for any serious work- however I find the duo is so much more enjoyable for just picking up and sketching, and will always favour it if I am doing something without a client envolved. There is something quite nice about the feel of drawing on the screen directly. So I have tried most of the styli available. Ignore the rubber tipped ones- even the best ones feel draggy- they also split very easily. I have two favourites at the moment.
for a quality yet cheap one, go for the New Trent Limir Stylus - about £6 on amazon
it is a bit small- but it also has a normal pen on the other end, which is handy. Because it has a metal weave texture tip, it glides quite well. If you have a bit of cash however go for a Nomad brush. I got stung on import fees getting it from America to England, but it was worth it. I got the short brush dual tip. That mixed with ArtRage painting software is a great combination.
