I don't see a difference, between those and a pc running 1 gig of ram.

Hehe, it's so funny reading your guys' posts about how much junk and how long it takes Windows XP to load. Thanks to certain sources, lets say...I shaved almost 30-40 seconds off my boot time. I now boot Windows XP Pro in about 36-38 seconds! But I digress...

Back to topic. You really won't notice much difference much difference. Pro has some more networking features and that's pretty much it. Other than that, they're relatively identical.
