Would it be possible to include an approximate cost along side the specs of the Zero Point machine when doing comparisons? I realize the ZPM might stick around a while, maybe just update the current cost of the ZPM once a month. It would make it a lot easier when seeing the ZPM scores VS the Scores of a $5000 machine, to know at a glance how much the extra performance costs. It would be even better when the ZPM is nearly Equal to a reviewed machine.

What would be the point? Hardware prices change so often, something that costs $5000 today might be less than $1000 in a year. Of course a $5000 computer is going to smoke a $500-$1000 computer. If it didn't, something would have to be seriously wrong with the $5000 computer.

When I read a review of a new system, I don't care about how much the zero point system costs. The only time I'd care how much the zero point system costs is if I were trying to build the zero point system.
