Microsoft "Microsoft's Surface RT is getting price cuts across the world this week as the company looks to boost sales of its first ever tablet hardware." Great vote of confidence on a platform barely out the door.

I think I'll wait until I can justify the cost and then buy a Surface Pro as a cheaper alternative to a Wacom Cintiq which I can install Linux on and use on the go.

If you want something to run Linux, then don't buy a tablet designed for running Windows.

Why not? If the hardware is priced as such that it makes economical sense, and you are able to run Linux on it, I can't see any reason not to.
