i disagree. i think you should go with either one, it does not really matter. even for small office/home office networking situations both are just at networkable as the other one. i would concentrate more on the notebook's hardware specs.
about the only useful thing i can think of getting the pro version rather than home is that you have to have pro to issue remote commands using "remote assistance". but the home version allows you to still accept remote assistance invitations from users with pro version. and with pro it lets you use remote desktop, which is garbage since you cannot initiate file transfers. not much of an advantage is it?
if you want another insight to what to get try going here:
