That's nuts. Do you do that much that you need a gigabit nic? 100 mbit would not be a bottleneck, your cable modem doesn't have anywhere close to that much throughput. Some people just need to find fault with everything just to get attention
by your logic the fact that all computers have gone to gigabit years ago, and most laptops with with wired nics have giagabit, is all some illusion?
There is a reason why professional laptop review sites note whether a laptop with a nic has stone age 100mbs or the company has spent the extra $3 to put in a 10/100/1000 as well.
throughtput needs are not simply modems, but things like backups etc.
I will agree that on a $430 laptop where the makers will throw in a garbage component if it saves them $1 it isn't a deal killer..
