Microsoft Store has the HP Pavilion x360 Convertible 2 in 1 PC - Signature Edition (15-bk193ms) on sale for $479.00 with free shipping and free returns.
Deal Notes: Reviews are mixed for this laptop, it has 12 5 stars reviews and 13 1 stars reviews. There are also 11 combined 4 and 3 star reviews. The takeaway from the reviews is that you should update it completely upon getting it out of the box and that if you have any issues with it, to return it without doubt or delay.

Too many h/w issues (keyboard) too..too risky down the line. Dont Signature PCs have some sorta standard ?? Also MS needs to revise their way of sharing everything by default. Sucks for people who are not computer savvy.

  I totally agree with your statement.

Bummer is, this is one of those laptops where you can open it up and change drives, but you have to take the keyboard out to do it. I had a sneaking suspicion it was that way, 2-in-1 format and hardware back panel seemed to good to be true.

So if you are pretty good with these kinds of things or have done once before it doesn't look ridiculous, but it probably voids your warranty.

  It would work with a capacitive one, but not the same kind as say a WACOM pad or a Samsung Note device. Those have a special sensor made just for them that does not rely on just capacitance. At least the Samsung Note devices do it that way.

Found out the hard way when I dropped and cracked my Note 5 screen, but my pen would still operate the phone even though the screen wouldn't even turn on. The cracks made the capacitance stop working but the extra sensor for the pen was still intact.
