Yes, yes it does take up space. We have been at the stage where the thinness of a laptop is dictated by an ethernet port (or, even worse in the case of most Windows laptops, a VGA port) for some time now. Apple just changed that.

You're falling for a stupid aesthetic trick. If you actually look at it, this new MB is perfectly thick enough to accommodate RJ45 or VGA - but, Apple makes it with "slick" tapering edges, so people like you can fall into perceiving it as more thin that it really is...

Neolander will be able to carry just as thin laptop that can straightforwardly connect to projectors - just one more sensibly designed here and there.
