I used to have a PC with a gazillion peripherals attached, then got fed up with all the shenanigans and went with a Macbook Pro Retina 13".
To handle everything, the scanner, printer, tablet, usb sticks, external hard drives, I picked up a 9 port usb 3 device and plugged everything into the Mac that way.
Then went clamshell mode by putting two thunderbolt displays in it, using the Mac bluetooth keyboard and mac magic mouse.
Finally, I missed the trackpad with magicprefs, and went out of clamshell mode and into 3-monitor mode.
I added a second 9-port usb 3 device, and am rocking with a desk full of gear plugged into 4 of the mac ports.
Hope that helps!
