Comes in handy at lunch spots with WiFi access and also can use it as a reader and watch short movies. Unit arrived quickly and works great. CF originally was intended for better cameras.

A memory larger than 4GB would be nice, but this is not a current unit. It can also serve as an external drive for your computer.
