Yes, that is the same.

Some of the current (and new?) Windows tablets may be running Windows RT, and it's not necessarily obvious in the specs. I understand "normal" Windows software cannot run in RT. Compounding the confusion is that Windows 9 is scheduled for circa April 2015; Windows 8 isn't selling well to the corporate market. I believe I read (on WSJD?) the Windows OS takes a lot of memory to run leaving relatively little for supplemental software when installed on entry-level versions of the newly-shown tablets.
I realize that tech bought at retail is out of date before the assembly piece is packaged to ship out the door, but sometimes I like to be slightly ahead of the curve instead of years behind.
Very true. They are not good about labeling RT vs full windows.
Normally, I will completely agree with you. Being behind is not fun. I understand this, I am in IT, I do tech support and run a server farm. I had never given the windows tablets any thought, I considered them IPad wannabees. However, one of my clients had a Surface Pro, and showed it to me. How impressed was I? Well, now that the Pro 2 come out, and the Price of the Pro 1 dropped by $400, I have one on the way from Amazon as we speak.
Will it replace my 12 core, 64GB of RAM, 1 TB of SSD, 8TB of disk Workstation? Will it replace my Ellitebook? Will it replace my Toughbook? Absolutely not. It does not come close. But how often do I use all 12 cores? Not often. The point for me is that it can be used for IPad type stuff. I can type stuff, use the internet, watch Youtube etc. But then, if I want too, I have the ability to run windows software on it, I can run my HAM Satellite tracking, full on APRS, or, in the scope of this thread, ACARS software. And, I can use any piece of hardware I want. (That's usb, including a SDR ;-)). And then I can dual boot Linux, which opens up another whole world of software.
I think the key is to look at these tablets as tablets that can do a whole lot more, as opposed to laptops in tablet form.
Just my $0.02
