- Macros, add-ins, and features that rely on ActiveX controls or 3rd party code such as the PowerPoint Slide Library ActiveX control and Flash Video Playback
- Certain legacy features such as playing older media formats in PowerPoint (upgrade to modern formats and they will play) and editing equations written in Equation Editor 3.0, which was used in older versions of Office (viewing works fine)
- Certain email sending features, since Windows RT does not support Outlook or other desktop mail applications (opening a mail app, such as the mail app that comes with Windows RT devices, and inserting your Office content works fine)
- Creating a Data Model in Excel 2013 RT (PivotTables, QueryTables, Pivot Charts work fine)
- Recording narrations in PowerPoint 2013 RT
- Searching embedded audio/video files, recording audio/video notes, and importing from an attached scanner with OneNote 2013 RT (inserting audio/video notes or scanned images from another program works fine)
Microsoft narrates how it ported Office to Windows RT, details differences with the Win 8 version

Now that you mentioned it, I'm wondering what Google is cooking with that QuickOffice acquisition.

By the time it came, I'd have already gotten a Surface :( Google better be quick if they want to take the tablet market before Microsoft closes the gap
