GeneralQuestion for the Masses re Windows Tablets Pin

The landscape is a mess so it is hard to find the answer from a Spec sheet, especially since RT can't install apps unless from Windows Store but:

It occurred to me that a Windows Tablet could be ideal for a simple manufacturing processing that I am putting together. If I could plug one up to multiple printers via USB (not cloud new fangled magic), and run a permanent power line (via USB is fine) and connect to WiFi, and install my own custom app without requiring internet access then I would have a brilliant touch screen interface for the line! Problem is, I don't get the feeling that all of this will "work" on the lower-end models. (If I had to pay PC prices I would just buy a PC)

Does anyone Own a Windows tablet that is capable of the above? I would prefer no speculation since the only real way to know is to buy one. Especially, since so many only have 1 USB port.
Need custom software developed? I do custom programming based primarily on MS tools with an emphasis on C# development and consulting.
