It is interesting as you go through the various student and home versions, just how
hard it is to figure out what you are (and are not) buying in each case. One example
would be the inclusion (or not) of GPIB capability. One would *assume* it’s in there and 
fully functional. At lest for me it’s a “must have” item on the check list. 

If anybody comes across a deep dive on what is / is not in each package, I’d 
certainly like to see it.
