From what I can tell they have the Pro w/ disc for $70, then the Upgrade for $40.
Now someone who knows what they are doing will just download the ISO which is provided my MS half the time, and then get the cheapest key, which would be the Upgrade version.
Anyone know if this is the case?
They say the upgrade is a downloadable version, but is the key restricted from being used if it wasn't detected on an actual upgrade?
I end up converting these to all in one usb installs anyway.

Hi :) 

The UPGRADE key will NOT work with PRO...

The Upgrade also NEEDS to see an activated version of Windows BEFORE continuing to install...

All the best Brett :)
