I would think the RJ-45 works really well and has been proven over the years. I would like to see an improvement in the reliability of the cheap connectors used on laptops, often these fail due to repeated connect/disconnects (after all, it is a portable). I have shied away from using wireless in favor of the hardwire connection in order to enjoy the higher speeds normally found with the cable. Perhaps, they could come up with a plug in replacement connector? Don't get me wrong, I would love a smaller form factor. The reduced footprint would be nice, but at the cost of needing multiple types of cables (small to small, small to large, etc.).

Is there a need for an RJ-45 replacement for reasons other than the cosmetic?

Yes, ethernet has found its way to TV. My new Samsung LCD TV already an ethernet jack to connect to my home router. This is for DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standard. With this I can stream music/movies from my laptop without much hassle!
