Windows 7: Question about USB extensions on my laptop

Question about USB extensions on my laptop

My laptop has four USB connections.
Three are located on one side of the computer, and the fourth is on the opposite side.
I would like to buy a four-connector USB extension and place it in the back of the computer, so I don't have all the wiring coming out of the side.
My question is: Can I connect three external devices to this type of an extension,or will that have a negative impact on performance?
Thank you

@oscer1 -
Thanks for the reply and the excellent advice. I was not aware the self-powered hubs were available. You put me on the right track.
Again, thanks a lot
