So to prevent headaches from having to hack drivers, not that I know how. I do understand that even though its not listed, it could still function. Additionally a high efficiency PSU reduces the need for cooling and heat is a very big issue in laptop design. We’ll see how long it last. Using a single NIC shouldn’t change the latency other than you end up with an extra local switch hop between the router and your cable modem since the switch has to do the VLAN translation. But that pretty much applies to all machines regardless of laptop, desktop, etc.
