Do Win 8 Phone and Surface RT Apps all play on Win 8 PC?

    What would be very nice, in the light of the issues pointed out above, would be a compact "cradle" available for the Surface Pro. This cradle should provide all types of ports normally found on a substantial laptop or PC. If technically possible, the cradle should also contain powerful graphics and sound cards, and deliver extra power to USB ports, etc., to boost the performance of monitors, speakers, keyboards, external drives etc connected to it. The Surface Pro could be connected to the cradle with 'n single, complex, hard-wearing connector. No wires or Bluetooth involved. Such a setup would really provide the user with a tablet and a "full-house" desktop PC in one.

    Many of the non-Microsoft Windows 8 convertibles have just that. For instance, the Asus tablets with attachable keyboard have various ports on them.

    Could you please give me the model number of an Asus tablet running Win 8 (the full version, not RT), with a detachable keyboard sporting a variety of ports for the external monitor, printer, hard drives etc? I would like to investigate such a model very much.

    Asus VivoTab and VivoTab Pro have Windows 8 with a dock. VivoTab RT has Windows RT.

    Does the VivoTab Pro have the full Win 8 (not RT)? Win 8 RT is not suitable.
