nope no point. home preimium has bad networking. but it has media center and stuff. If you want it all go pro. NOT ultimate.

If you're a student, with a .edu you can get ultimate for like $40 usd, or used to be able to. Otherwise, I'll probably get it for my next build, because having a disposable income is nice sometimes.
