There is no stylus provided with the laptop, and no place in the laptop to keep one when you aren't using it. If we provide one externally, kids will tend to lose it. If we don't provide one, they'll either write on the trackpad with pencils or pens or sticks or forks or the AC adapter or other objects we'd rather not have touching the trackpad.
It was easy not to notice the lack of a stylus when that half of the hardware didn't work, and when none of the software supported using it for much. But that era is ending.
I'm challenged to think of any other piece of hardware that can accept stylus input, yet doesn't have a stylus garage built into its frame, and come shipped with a stylus.
