Bamboo Ink is specificaly designed for Windows Ink and was tested with the tablets listed here: http://www.wacom.com/comp
It supports AES and MPP technology. If your HP device uses Microsoft MPP protocol, Bamboo Ink works only in apps supporting Windows Ink. If your tablet works with Wacom AES, installation of the driver can provide pressure in more apps (through the Wintab API)

Update: HP Spectre 360 is using the MPP protocol from Microsoft. (HP Spectre x2 uses the AES technology.)
