office 2010 pro--clean installl or upgrade?

Good People,
On another machine I had made a 100% clean install of Win 7 Ultimate and office 2010 Pro.

I have another machine with Win7 Ultimate and office 2007 Pro.

My question is: On the second machine, what are the cons of installing 2010 Pro as an upgrade?

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1

My original installation of Office 2010 Pro was an upgrade and I had no issues at all.

I have tried both, no problem if you don't use Endnote X3 at the same time.
