Why is it that you can never find a pen when you need one? And though the iPad doesn’t ship with a stylus, if you do much sketching or digital note-taking, they’re handy to have around. But it’s annoying having to carry around a pen and a stylus at the same time, and constantly switching between the two. The Kensington Virtuoso Metro Stylus and Pen solves this conundrum by combining both into one handy do-everything writing utensil.
The Virtuoso is solid, and comfortable to write with.
Kensington’s Virtuoso looks and feels like a regular pen. On one end, it’s a ballpoint pen, and on the other it’s a stylus with a tip that works with capacitive touchscreens like your iOS device. On paper it writes in black ink, and on an iPad or Mac trackpad, it produces smooth lines for signatures, sketches, and whatever else you need. The Virtuoso is a bit heavier than your standard black Sharpie, but it feels just as organic between your fingers as any other writing instrument. And as an added bonus, you can replace the ink cartridge when it runs out. Unfortunately, the width of the stylus tip is too big for detailed sketching -- don’t expect any fine lines. If the tip were a bit narrower, we’d undoubtedly find more reasons to use it, and have cleaner notes as a result.
The bottom line. The Virtuoso is a handy utility for the multi-tasking professional or student who needs to sign both physical and virtual documents, but budding iPad artists should steer clear and invest in something better suited to their needs.
