Media Center (as Microsoft spells it) is designed for PCs that are entertainment centres. That version of the OS has a PVR function so that if you've got a TV card it can record broadcasts to the hard drive. It's also set up to manage music and photo collections; and the interface can be switched to one that you can see at a distance and on a low-res screen: ie your telly from the sofa. If you're not planning to use the PC in that way, there's no need for Media Center.

I agree with Kate B, the OS is otherwise XP and you will not notice any difference.
