Microsoft has published a full list of hardware that's guaranteed to be compatible with the new Windows RT operating system for ARM-based devices. You can view the list at Microsoft's website, it's ordered into categories and currently features 30,779 items of hardware.
The new Windows RT section of the Microsoft Compatibility Centre website (toggle the OS you are interested in with the control widget in the upper right corner) lists devices under the categories of; Cameras & photo, Printers & scanners, MP3 & media players, TV devices, Communications devices, Mice, keyboards & input devices, Displays, Networking, Graphics cards & components and finally Storage devices. Some of the categories are a bit pointless with regards to a Microsoft Surface RT tablet as, for instance, there are unsurprisingly no graphics cards compatible with the new ARM powered tablet.
