Just out of curiosity, what features in Ultimate or Enterprise (same thing except for activation methods) that are not available in Home Premium or Pro, are you planning to utilize?

I have the same curiosity!

If you don't do backups over the network and the BitLocker thing, you don't need Ultimate only to use Media Center.

Good luck with Ultimate, but I suggest to wait for Christmas sale or something like that.
