Laptop equipped with Chipknip reader

Today someone showed me that my laptop (the HP elitebook 8530w ) is equipped with a smart card reader that can read out the dutch chipknip chips found on debit cards.

Together with some software I can read out all sorts of information from the debit card chip:


Now I’m only left with one question, why would a laptop be equipped with these kind of readers…
