The name was inspired by Windows RunTime, a collection of tools designed to allow developers to develop software on either ARM or Intel/AMD processors, although the name is more an homage than meant to indicate a direct connection. The version more customarily seen on desktops is Windows 8 Pro.
Devices running RT are, compared with tablets running Pro, cheaper, have (theoretically) a slightly better battery life and can be a fraction thinner. However, RT has a significant limitation compared to Pro, it will only run apps downloaded from Windows Store. You can't just double-click on any old file with a .exe extension and install it. As Windows Store presently has a smaller selection of apps compared with Google Play and Apple store, this has lead some to criticize the platform as being too limited.
In terms of what this means for you, if your tablet requirements are reasonably standard, i.e., check email, surf the web, social media, etc., and you are considering the Surface because it has MS Office so you can be a bit more productive, RT isn't a bad option. However, if there are particular programs you definitely need, you should consider the Surface Pro, which will cost you a bit more. see less
