    Can you install any PC games of Surface RT in desktop mode?
    I know you can with the Pro version.

    you cant install them on your surface per say but you can play the on the surface which is more or less the same thing. if you have another computer / laptop at home connected to internet install the pc program on that. then download an app from the win app store called 'splashtop'. you must also install it on your home pc. its very easy to set up and its essentially a remote desktop tool. which means that you can run any program from your full pc on your surface over the internet. its very good and very smooth an fast. hope this helps.

    There is also a built in Remote Desktop app which works well. I've used that to remote into my laptop on the same network.
