Tablet-as-word-processor search: I'm looking for a tablet that can run (at least some of) my old Windows programs, and has a full-size USB port.

I'm thinking about getting a tablet, but I'm wondering if one exists that would be able to:
1. run an old Windows program called AutoHotKey that runs constantly in the background and performs realtime macros on what I type (ie changes "t" to "the"), and
2. take my old Fingerworks keyboard
, which connects via full-size USB.
Does something like this exist? I don't know anything about mobile/tablet OSs. Someone in a previous thread mentioned that the Acer Iconia Tab A200 was the only one he'd seen that had a full-size USB in, and that might be fine, but it runs Android 4.0 and I don't know if that or any mobile OS can run a program like AutoHotKey.
I'm thinking of this machine as basically just a very lightweight word processor
, so screen resolution, processor speed and memory are low priorities, but battery life is still important.
Any advice? Thanks.
