Sounds like a waste of money. If you need chess on the go, get a palm or pocketPC - there are many good chess engines for those.

I picked up an el-cheapo (about $10) handheld LCD chess computer from Dick Smith's just before Christmas, it was very fiddly and not very strong on its highest level - but might be fun for those just starting out. :)
