Web Server in RJ45 Connector

From Slashdot comes a link to the XPort by Lantronix, which “includes an 80186 controller, an OS, the TCP/IP stack, a 10/100 Ethernet transceiver, and the LAN interface magnetics.” The downside is that “the serial interface to the controller tops out at 300 kbps. ” The cost is USD 33 (in 10K quantities).

Am thinking if this can be used as a thin client.
