I know it has been done with the Air though can it be done with the Pro and Mini and at what cost. Would Apple do it for thinness?
I'm not saying that it's a good idea to get rid of the ethernet port. But they removed it from the air, and if they really want to make the MBP thinner, then it will have to go.Except that USB is is 400mbps (peak) and usually 1/3 of the sustained while Gigabit Ethernet is 1000mbps sustained sure...
I could see them make it a thunderbolt dongle though in the future for the non-pro models.
