That's simply not true.
I'm not going to claim RT is the best choice for everybody. But there are differences in vulnerability, form factors available, and, especially when you are talking about Dell, build quality and support. And you won't notice any difference between the two other than the inability to run x86 desktop programs on RT.
I do still like the Venue 11, at least on paper, and would consider it if I were buying today. It's nice to have choices.
I so often see people complain about the desktop being in 8/RT tablets. Yet when they can't run old desktop programs they complain as well. It's really a no-win situation for Microsoft.
