What is the difference between Windows RT and Windows 8? I was wanting a Lenovo Yoga laptop and saw the 11 inch Yoga 11 with Windows RT. Will that run all applications any other Windows based OS can? What are the advantages or disadvantages of having Windows RT?

Windows RT is the equivalent of an Android or iOS environment. Applications are downloaded through an app store and you cannot install applications like you can on a regular Windows desktop. The advantage is that it's cheaper than Windows 8 Pro tablets but the disadvantage is there are not as many applications in their market as other platforms.
