Of course the surface RT can't replace your x86 Laptop. It's stated everywhere that x86 Desktop applications wont run on it. Wait for the pro Version.

I don't think its that apparent, it's stated in a fine print kind of way going by the website and the marketing I've seen. Most desktop users don't even understand the difference which is why Surface RT was always kind of a silly proposition. The price tag is a bit baffling too, Surface Pro could easily be $1k+.

"but I can click the desktop right here, why won't it run desktop stuff?!" have fun explaining it.

I think eventually the third parties will come up with something better at a reasonable price. That combined with some refinements to Metro could mean some real competition with traditional laptops.
