Windows 8 or Windows 8 R/T?

Just a reminder in case someone goes out and buys the wrong product - there are two very different versions of Windows 8:

- Windows 8 runs on a PC platform typically with an Intel iCore processor. It is an evolution of Windows 7 and I personally have complete confidence in it. It's what you have on your Samsung.

- Windows 8 R/T is a new development based on a tablet platform with an ARM processor. It will run versions of software developed specifically for it (Office) but it won't run PC software like Lightroom. I think it's going to have bugs (like anything new).

A Windows 8 tablet and a Windows 8 R/T tablet look pretty much the same, but they aren't. The R/T tablet will probably last much longer on a single battery charge thanks to its energy-efficient CPU but your choice of software is fairly limited for the time being.
