Any touch screen will support a capacitive stylus (the rubber-tip); of those, the Adonit Jot Pro is the best capacitive stylus I've seen. Check amazon.
Of x86 tablets, I have upgraded from 7 to 8 on mine. Works fairly well, but I don't have perfect driver support for the hardware buttons (namely the Start button and the Rotation Lock). Not a terribly big problem.
If you're looking to take notes in class, and this is your primary goal, I'd rather steer you toward the Android-based Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, or the Windows 8 Samsung Series 7 Slate (link
). Both support Wacom digital pen tech with their screens, on the latter I just use Windows Journal and push my notes to Skydrive. Either one will give you a stellar note-taking experience, especially for math and science classes. The styluses of the Note and Slate are interchangeable (as should really be any of the Wacom pens), so if you buy the Note 10.1 you can buy the pen for the Slate separately and get the better writing experience, since the slate pen has an 'eraser' tip, instead of having to go and select the eraser brush every ten seconds. Compared to capacitive screens/styluses these offer you far more accuracy and natural writing, since you can rest your hand on the screen and it wont interfere with the input (when the pen is on/near the screen, touch response is disabled).
