Well, we expect most people will use wireless networking with Tablets (even though we include an Ethernet port).
I have a keyboard that I plug into mine. That's one cord (I also have a mouse that plugs into my keyboard). USB port replicators are out there and are plentiful. So, for all your USB devices, you should only need to plug one thing in.
Power is a second one.
We do have a USB port bar which has these ports:
2 PS/2 ports (keyboard and mouse)
1 RS232 (Comm - Serial)
1 Parallel (Printer)
1 RJ-45 (Ethernet)
2 USB Ports
The part number on that is: OP-560-74702, but you'd still need to plug some things in (like power and an external monitor, if you have one of these).
