Computer Brain uses computer programs, which are digital records that can be easily copied and found on the Internet, so they are going to be cheaper (and that is just a suggested cost, I use a similar cost for Computer Brain in my games for legitimate programs). Basic (p. 71) says that the GM determines the cash cost of the materials for Super-Memorization, and my costs are comparable to the costs given for Grimoires from RPM, if you replace the cost per +1 for one ritual to cost per CP for a broader skill. Now, everyone will have their own costs, and $100 per CP may be suitable for some settings, though that would represent books you could get from a Barnes & Noble or that you could purchase on a Kindle in contemporary society.

$128,000 for 8 points sounds like way too much. For comparison, brain chips in Ultra-Tech cost $1,000 per point at TL 9. I wouldn't go much higher than that, or you're making the advantage pointless.

1. The applicability of Maximum Duration is not defined in reference to those categories.

How exactly would you consume $128,000 worth of textbooks in 8 seconds? It'd be tough just flipping through one textbook per second, and that would be dozens, if not hundreds.
