Depends on your perspective and what you intend to do. The point will include the same flat cut as the flat alone. But along with that, you will get a bit more meat on the point and gobs more fat. The trade off is the point is a cheaper cut per pound. Look at both and you may find you can buy the entire point for the same total money as a flat. Sort of like bonus, but then you get to deal with the extra.
I think if you did a poll, you would find most guys on this forum will buy the point and then find a use for the extra (also knowing it will probably take longer to smoke).
