windows xp media centre edition

Excuse the ignorance but is this the same as XP with extra features? I am buying the family a new pc for Xmas and the system on the one we favour, Fujitsu Scaleo, is XP Media.

It is xp with numerous extra features, xp itself can do all that media centre can, however media centre will do it with far less fuss and via a remote control. One thing though, don't expect it to be quiet, it may say so, but as far as I'm concerned if there's a fan running, you'll hear it, especially during those quiet moments in thriller films. There are mixed reviews around the web about mce and I for one vowed never to touch one for noise issues, when that end of it's sorted, I'll be first in line.
