Should I fork out $130 for the upgrade ?

And what would be the main difference between Professional and Ultimate ?

Going on Professional version from Home Premium is also a little satisfaction for yourself, think you can edit some registry settings in group policy editor without messing around, tweaking! Even if the purpose of tweaking is having a knowledge matter about an OS! I would go on Pro only for that, since i spent years learning those settings i could get on a Pro Version so easily, plus its on Laptop.
