Just use a powered USB hub.

Most of the problems with using USB devices on Atom tables are related with low bus power.

All standard USB devices should have 5v voltage, whereas most Windows tablets only use 3.3v battery, which is not sufficient nor efficient enough to flawlessly run USB devices.

You could throw around your ThinkPad because it won't break.
