With a paperless cockpit, you could get more complete, more accurate, and more easily accessed information. Yes, a win all around and it won’t cost you much.
The AC defines an EFB as an electronic display system intended mainly for cabin or cockpit use.

An EFB can also include other databases, perhaps FARs, or additional applications such as crosswind, weight-and-balance and holding calculators.
