I would go by the features needed. If you don't need the extra features in Ultimate then I would not spend the extra money.

Feature Comparison here: Compare Windows - Microsoft Windows

If you decide to go for Ultimate, use Anytime Upgrade as suggested as it costs less and is only takes 15 minutes to unlock the extra features while keeping everything else in place.

You can also use a retail Win7 upgrade or full version key in Anytime Upgrade.

Thnaks for the reply greg !.
Actually I want to install sharepoint 2010 on my system . And for that I would need to install a Hyper V and then Windows Server 2008 which would get installed on Windows 7 Home Premium .

Also IIS is not enabled in Home Premiuim .

Would I be able to do all that if I use Anytime Upgrade ?
Also could you please tell where would I get the full version key for that ?

Thanks in advance !!
