I was curious about this possibility also, so I contacted the info at wri.com and here's what they said. The student version will not use a math coprocessor, even if present. THe rep said that this makes little difference for normal calculations, but for large data sets, numerical calculations, or intensive graphics work, it translates into about 4 times slower. Unfortunately, this is what I use Mathematica for, so I guess I'll have to go with the full version.
