I've been searching far and wide for an answer to this question...
The brand new Spin 7 notebook (NP730QAA-K01US) supposedly has Active Pen compatibility, but I have been finding NOTHING on what active pens are compatible with it. Does the new notebook have Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP)? Could I use something like the Bamboo Ink? I just want to buy a laptop knowing that it has what I need.

The notebook does have MPP.  We are looking to to the compatibility with the bamboo ink.  Thank you for your patience.

So there is no hope if I bought a Spin early this year? I wish you guys would replace the screens or something. The Best Buy guys had no idea this thing was incompatible with all pens.

So what active pen can I buy that is currently compatible with a new (2018) Samsung Notebook 7 Spin?

as long as its one of the new 2018 model, it "should" be compatible with any of these...

“Should”?! What kind of support is that? I just bought the same computer at Best Buy and we have the same issue. We did get someone to connect a Bamboo Ink for us at the store and it did write on the screen just fine. I have one on order. Why do you say it’s not compatible? Why is there no list of supported active pens if this computer has the capability?

I say "should" because i don't have a Notebook 7 Spin.

I say "should" as opposed to "should not" because of announcements that say the 2018 version is compatible.

I say "should" because the new versions are compatible with the S Pen, but even though not all of the pens in the link are S Pens, they use the same technology, so they "should". To be safe, you can go for the official S Pen

if the spin 2018 is indeed using either wacom AES or microsoft MPP, than the wacom bamboo ink pen IS compatable as it is a duel protocol pen that works via those 2 protocols. 

I hope the moderation team do a better job in research and do not spread false information to consumers.
