The use of Active stylus pens is becoming more standard for tablets and convertible notebooks. This
invention makes using an active pen on a 360 more useful for a better user experience. Studies show
that users like to write with their screen at an angle. This is achieved on surface pro like tablets with a
kickstand. On a 360 notebook the user only has one choice for writing, it must be flat. At any other
angle, when the user will try to write on the screen the unit will tip over or the hinge will close because
it cannot support the weight of the user’s hand. Traditional hinge designs are too bulky to put behind
the display. This disclosure is for a new hinge and kickstand design that can help minimize the impact to
the size and design of the notebook.
