An Ethernet port would be most probably physically too big to fit on a 0.7" thick laptop. Should we keep forever thicker laptops just in case we need a wired connection and do not want to spend $29 on an adapter?

My ZenBook came with a free USB Ethernet dongle.

Which is something I think we as consumers may expect when we pony up 1000 EUR for a laptop (or in the case of the new MBP, 2279 EUR).

I've seen more than a few designs for fold-out ports. Looking back to the modem days, lots of ways to fit a big port in a slim case.
