Hi there, my name is ***** ***** I am one of the experts here on Please give me a moment to review your issue.

There are none listed as supported on the HP site so I'm going to say no. I did more extensive research and nothing gave me any indication that this will work for you. If you'd like to check the list by HP yourself, you can visit it at:

Please let me know if you have any further questions about this issue. Thank you for using!

Hi Donna:I checked the HP site before asking you. The HP technical support person at Costco said it would support a pen with a software upgrade. The trouble with the HP web is they list devices they are selling pens with, however the question is if the display has the digitizer necessary for pen support (no amount of software upgrades would fix this). The HP site does not have sufficient information to determine if a display includes the digitizer and therefore I'm looking for a true expert who knows the internal details of the HP model I've referenced. At present I'm unsatisfied with your answer since you have not provided any information I did not already know. Please answer to the question.Cheers,Paul

Hi Paul, I'm afraid I am not able to find exact specs for your model of the Envy so maybe it would be best to contact HP directly?
