Look here

Compare Windows 7 Editions

Here is what Ultimate has that is not available in Professional:

BitLocker, BitLocker To Go, AppLocker, Direct Access, Branche Cache, MUI language packs, boot from VHD.

Here is what Professional has that is not available in Home Premium:

Domain join, Remote Desktop host, location aware printing, EFS, Mobility Center, Presentation Mode, Offline Folders, Group Policy (GP) controls, advanced backup, XP Mode.

If you know what those are and need 'em, go for it.

The default recommendation is Home Premium.

Unless you know you'll need a feature found in the PRO/Ultimate versions, Home premium is the way to go.

Home Premium, but Utimate if you want it all. Also, that laptop needs upgrading. Have you run the Windows Upgrade Advisor?

Vista Ultimate 32 bit, Win 7 Pro 32 bit, Win 7 Pro 64 bit
 
 

I would say the safest and middle ground is 7 Pro 32 bit.
