If you want to simply compare the performance of one sheet product against another, instead of looking at assemblies, then the better material is typically the heavier one ... it's all about max pounds for the buck !
I've been happily married for 22 years and I was really into 2 channel when I met my wife, so she knew what she was getting !
The whole subject of spend now / save for retirement is very interesting and whilst we are keenly aware of having enough to see us through, I've never, ever considered a purchase as adding to my working life.
