What interfaces should be eliminated in modern netbook ?

Netbook must be slim, light weight, handy consuming as low power as possible. To further reduce the size of and power drain of netbook, I think at least LAN socket and VGA outlet can be eliminated. For LAN, it is because netbook computers are being used in a mobile environment. The exisiting bundling of HSPA, WiFi and Bluetooth is sufficient for wireless access. As for VGA out connector, this has no useful purpose at all unless you use it for presentation. Besides, the dimension of the VGA connector will defeat the slim design of netbook. It should be eliminated for consumer and convenience sake.

After killing the two interfaces, there should be a reduction in power drain.
