Money. It's cheaper to do it that way..
yyep. this s pretty much.. errr... on the money
There's also the form factor to consider -- to an extent, there are no
standards for laptop gadgetry because there's no way to do that.
Different laptop sizes and shapes require differently-sized and
-shaped crap inside.
... all completely optimised and customised based around what they
can get hold of, or what the reference design from intel is (which
will have specific power requirements and thermal requirements)...then
there is the constant demand for "thin-ness" which, as chris says,
means that a CUSTOM CONNECTOR gets ordered and made... and you can't
get hold of them.
ron i wrote a long time ago when developing the tablet, about using a
single embedded controller which only costs $1, instead of putting in
a $1 USB hub, a $1.50 USB camera, a $1 USB audio IC and so on.

Do you still know where your write up is?

Thanks,
David
