    I have recently found out that I can buy Windows 8.1 at a discounted price. But that is apparently the ProfessionalStudent SKU, which seems to use different installation media and cannot be upgraded to from 8.1 Core. So, what are the differences between Pro and ProStudent? Or is MS just being a dick like they are with CoreConnected SKUs, which have the same features but different ISOs?

    the difference between them is not alot of changes , since their both Professional images the student image might have things like office and other crap installed on it that students might find useful. most of the time people dont even care about the crap software installed on it and just use their own programs.
