Do I want bitlocker for personal use?

Hey guys... so I'm a big noob and am actually quite useless with a computer beyond the control panel.

I'm looking at getting a ThinkPad Tablet 2. It's CloverTrail so it's packing 32-bit Windows 8, but it comes with the option to get Windows 8 Pro installed which will allow the use of bitlocker, TPM, and all of these other great security features I don't understand. I'm assuming this is really just meant for businesses, and that for my own personal use I don't really need or want it and will still be able to remote desktop with my desktop at home.

Thanks guys.
