I came across this term and am wondering what Windows RT is.


Windows RT was formerly known as Windows on ARM (Advanced RISC Machine/ Acorn RISC Machine).


It is an operating system for ARM devices such as tablets and slates, and will officially only run software from the Windows Store or those included in Windows RT.


Applications included with Windows RT include;

  • Microsoft Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • OneNote 2013

The operating system is only available for sale to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) such as Lenovo.


Lenovo is expected to carry Windows 8 systems in the last quarter of 2012.
