Can A Windows RT Tablet Replace My Laptop?

Windows on ARMSince tablets these days are amazingly powerful little devices, many people are starting to wonder if they can replace a regular laptop completely. Especially now that there are some great Windows 8 and Windows RTtablets available, the prospect of working entirely from a tablet is indeed looking more likely.


However, in the case of Windows RT, this is not quite as easy as you might think. This is because Windows RT is not anything like a regular windows install – It looks like Windows 8, but it's really very different. Most notably, you can't install regular Windows applications on it. You can only install apps from the Windows Store, similar to using an iPad or Android tablet. That's not to say that working from your Windows RT tablet is impossible, though. You may be surprised.
