[PLUG] Cheap x86 Windows tablet?

The recent discussion of falling phone prices got me thinking of something else: my "around the house" laptop is really old and for light-duty use a tablet might be more convenient. It seems like the prices for Windows 8 tablets are coming down now.

How easy is it likely to be to install linux on a Win 8 tablet? Any recommendations on models to consider? Also, I really want a keyboard. It seems like a bluetooth keyboard with a separate battery is going to add hassle; is that true (should I limit my search to tablets that come with detachable keyboards) or are bluetooth keyboards ok?
