Hi Lak,

 

 

You cannot install third-party application on Windows RT.

 

If you wish to install more apps please visit Windows Store and check.

 

 

Please post if you have any concerns regarding Windows.

You don't need CCleaner on an RT tablet because it is like an iPad:  it doesn't get all junked up like a full PC does.

 

Team Viewer is available in the Windows Store (I use it and love it!)

 

Basically just get any programs you need form the Windows Store, and remember that the RT tablet is an iPad competitor, not a full PC.  It meets my needs and might meet yours too, but it isn't a full computer.

Yes, the Surface Pro has a processor inside that can run all Windows apps; it is like a full computer.  That's also why it's thicker, heavier, has a noisy fan to cool it off, and has half the battery life time.  All of those are trade-offs you have to make to use older programs.  So the Surface Pro could replace your laptop or computer.

 

On the other hand, the Surface RT isn't a computer replacement.  It is great for getting work done, and lots of apps are available in the Store (and more all the time).  If you want a tablet with Office, great battery life, and don't need old programs, the RT is a great choice.  That's why I like it.

 

What programs are you needing?

Very good, maybe you would need a more traditional computer instead of a tablet.

 

Viber and Tango are phone apps, I didn't even know they could run on a full computer.

 

Google will not provide Google Drive for Windows tablets.  Google believes if you want their services, you will need to buy a Google tablet.  But Microsoft does have SkyDrive, which gives you more free space (7 GB) and Office, so maybe you could use SkyDrive instead.
