If you want to enjoy the latest technology that Microsoft has available for your stylus, the Slim Pen is what you should get. But if you're not interested in wireless charging (with Surface Pro X) or an integrated rechargeable battery, Surface Pen will save you some money.

Out with the old, with the new
With the Surface Slim Pen, you will turn your Surface device into a powerful creative tool, allowing you to draw and interact with various parts of Windows. The rechargeable battery with wireless charging only makes it easier to use, since you don't have to carry AAAA batteries. If you plan to make some notes or scribbles, the classic Surface Pen may be the best option with considerable savings.
In addition to the visual changes in the design, as well as the battery and wireless charging, there is no big deal option that separates the classic Slim Pen. Both use Microsoft's N-trig technology and are incredibly accurate. Do you really want a wireless charging and a built-in rechargeable battery? The Surface Slim Pen is for you. The classic Surface Pen is for anyone who is not interested in the above features and wants to save some money.
Surface Slim Pen is the best of Microsoft
Microsoft updated the Surface Pen line with the addition of a Slim Pen. This new model is expensive, but it comes with some interesting features, such as wireless charging (Surface Pro X) and a slim design, hence its name.
