If you have to ask, you can't afford it. ;-)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of "Gear built as character points," but sometimes...well, sometimes you just have to build the best Haxx0r intrusion software that character points can buy. I personally use "Best Quality" in my games for those who can access it. It works just fine.

I think the cash limitation of Signature Gear is a problem here. Clearly if you've got the 'Best equipment possible at your TL' that would come under Signature Gear

Another consideration about software Complexity:

The earliest one gets software tools is TL6. At TL6, the 'best of the TL' bonus is +3, which goes beyond the +2 bonus of Complexity 7 ($1M at TL6-7) programs. However, TL6 and TL7 only allow up to C7 software, even though at this point best-of-TL is better than Fine. That seems like a roundabout indication that at some point, accountants stop asking for more RAM/CPU for their spreadsheets, and likely taper off at C7.
