RT being able to RDP and having similar superpowers as iOS and Android is cool with me. My intent was to get the [cheaper] Surface RT to do what a hipster-version of me would do with an iPad.
My current convertible-tablet can be upgraded to Windows 8 Pro to do all those desktop like things (run Access, GIS, 3D-modeling, etc).
Of course, "APPS" is the name of the game. Office is a good start but they will need to bring in some heavy hitters. If MS goes RT all over their Streets & Trips GPS program, I can take the Surface on road trips instead of taking my more expensive Win8Pro convertible.
