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.

You cant buy just Win 8 RT so this wont be a issue.

I'm not sure what you're claiming not be be "an issue".   Windows 8 RT has a very limited selection of apps available compared to Windows 8 on an Intel-based tablet.  That's the issue Franglais91 was warning people about, and it's a very real one.
