Found 2nd Sep
Just picked up a new surface pen for 59.99 in currys in Wallsend (rrp 99.99) 2017 edition in platinum.
Guy in store said there is a promotion on but it doesn't show on website and there was no details of it in store.
He said all models of the surface pens are 59.99 atm, which makes the new model a bargain!

Do you have the product code for the surface pen? It will be the last 6 digit code under the product description

On receipt it has 0000214058 @ £99.99
Promotion - Promotional offer -£40.00

Definitely newest model, no loop, has tilt feature etc

Not voting either way but what does a surface pen actually do?

Is this just £60 for a glorified stylus?

What's the difference in what it does to the one in Argos for £49.99... argos.co.uk/pro…942

2 x the sensitivity/pressure levels, no loop/clip, less lag, lets you tilt pen to shade more easily.
Unless you do graphic design the older model from surface pro 4 or even 3 is fine (both around £50)
Imho it would not be worth the extra £50 for the new model but for £10 it definately is. I was going to get the sp4 pen but was told new one was same price so got that- not seen it on offer anywhere else so far

Actually the argos pen is from the sp3 so new model is 4 x the sensitivity/pressure levels...

ignore last comment!
Argos pen - sp3 pen- has 256 pressure levels (i think). Sp4 pen has 1024 levels.
New pen has 4096 levels
