Great review Jim, though I would recommend linking to the 'PCMark 8 Technical Guide' you mention on THIS page.

 

Here is a link to FutureMarks guide page:

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

As it says that for corporation use, it probably provides unlimited usage within their business and easier installation/integration etc.

Most of the concerned enterprises/corporations have more than enough money to invest. And $1.5K is nothing to them. :P

Precisely. If a company needs the corporate license for PCMark 8 or even 3DMark, then there's enough in the coffers for one.

 

An average person would be more than happy with the free edition or, if they really need it, dropping $50 on the Advanced.
