|Choosing between Home and Pro is a no-brainer to me. Pro has much more administration and customization options. Even if Heikki chooses not to use them now, he'll at least have them later on. The speed difference between Home and Pro isn't all that much. You will notice a speed hit when updating from SP1 to SP2, however. Because the laptop is intended for Internet use, I think it's worth the cost for the latest service pack (SP3) at cost of speed. I've always recommended Pro to home users.|
