As I understand it, a first dot in anything costs $300, providing you have at least 4 Research.
So far I have been charged.
Computer $400 for first dot (4 Research, I reloaded and double checked this, thinking I must have had only 3 Research)
Stealth $300 (5 Research) - this was as expected.
Finance $600 (6 Research) - what is going on here? Is this anything to do with Finance counting twice towards Haggling now? Although I don't see how.
Are Talents / Skills / Knowledges costed differently from each other?
If they are then I would have been better off buying dots with experence for the more expensive ones and using the cash for the others.
