    Opinion? LAN Input Cable on Newer Products??

    The prime obviously does not have a connection port for LAN, but if they were trying to achieve a Tablet/Laptop hybrid wouldnt it be good to have LAN port? If they were able to design it well enough they could work it into the size specifications into the current and upcoming models of any pproducts. It just seems like it could prove useful. Thoughts?

    Many users have reported that with ICS some USB LAN adapters work, including the Apple one on the TF101 and TF201. Once ICS comes to the slider it should work there too.

    Here is a link to the thread: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...-possible.html

    The connection alone is an issue for me. You are talking about putting a connection that is ~50% thicker than the tablet or dock. I know some people have wifi issues, but I don't see any reason for hardwired internet connections anymore other than for gigabit speeds. I just don't see an advantage to having the port. I'd rather see perfect working wifi than an ethernet port.

    Just get the Apple USB to LAN adapter as recommended. Small light and cheap and solves the problem. cheaper than the others that work. Just got one for $AU29 delivered. Its a no brainer - nothing to install, just works.
