i understand that,but why two cf ports?

No, it's not hot swap, but still.. Nice to have..

(p.s. I generally don't leave the FAT card mounted in the A1000 to save memory. These large drives eat up more memory when mounted..)
if its not hotswappable it makes having two a bit pointless if you have to power down to remove one anyway.
