You can still buy new Dell laptops that have RJ45-NIC's on them.

I use a QGeeM hub when I need more ports.

They still make them but I'm finding more users here that want MS Surface or Dell XPS laptops. I'm seeing Dell Precision laptops without a LAN port and that's close to top of the line and bigger than the 2 I mentioned.
I'm finding that Surface has become the status laptop to get when your IT dept won't buy you a Mac. Which is another laptop with no LAN port.

Then values are not in line with needs.

NIC = highest priority
No dongles = next highest priority

The laptop model preference is not weighted the same.

I want a pony. But need a draft horse.

I realize I'm being a bit cranky. But jeez, get your priorities straight.

Do you want a laptop that does the job, or do you want a fancy/nice laptop with features that aren't as important?
