Can Windows 8.1 RT join an Active Directory 2012 domain? I've been looking around and I'm having a hard time determining if they are talking about 8.1 or 8.1 RT but its very unclear.

No, according to the FAQ for Windows 8.1 RT, under the question "What's the difference between Windows 8.1 RT and Windows 8.1?":

Some features aren't included in Windows RT 8.1:

  • Windows Media Player

  • Windows Media Center

  • HomeGroup creation (you can join an existing HomeGroup but you can't create a new one)

  • The ability to connect to your Windows RT 8.1 PC from another PC using Remote Desktop

  • Domain join

The Windows RT FAQ clearly states that joining a domain is not available in Windows RT 8.1.
