Difference Between Pro & Ultimate

I am thinking of upgrading my other PC to Win 7 and was wondering is there much difference apart from the price between the Ultimate 64 and the Professional 64 ?

For most everyday needs Pro is the best way to go. Other than for a very small handfull of people Ultimate is overkill. Read the information provided by the Captain, he always provides good advice and information, and you decide. After you are done reading, I think that you will see that Ultimate is overkill, and for a lot more money. Hey, if you save that money, you could get more RAM or anything else that you like.
