I have an iBuyPower Battalion Touch CZ-11 Ultra. Is it possible to get a stylus that would work for this screen? I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I think its touchscreen is similar to that of an iPad (with less touch points), and I know the iPad can't use say a Nintendo DS stylus.

On the site, the CZ-10 specs are listed for some reason. I have the CZ-11 which has a different screen (resolution-wise anyway). See My System Specs for that, not the site.

What you need to find out is whether or not it is capacitive touch. If it works when you use, say, the back of a ballpoint pen on it, it is not capacitive (meaning you can use a Nintendo DS stylus). If however, it does require that you use your fingertips, then it is capacitive, and you will need to look for a capacitive stylus (they're usually more expensive). As far as specific models go, I'm not too sure... the iBuyPower site wasn't particularly helpful. :p
