Default Need to make decision today. HELP

I am about to buy Vista. I am going to get 64 bit, I can't decide between basic, premium, or ultimate. They honestly arent much different are they.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...ns/choose.mspx

I really don't think I need things that basic doesn't have. I'm not really on a budget, but the cheaper the better.

Opinions please.

Unless you know why you need ultimate, you don't need it. Go with Home Premium.

i think premium is the preferred one for most users. i don't see what ultimate has for the extra money that the average user would need, and basic is too, well, basic. that's half the fun of vista is the eye candy which you don't get in basic.
