Absolutely, very little difference indeed (after all what would be the point in having it be substantially different). Other than the case, The educational release of the model-A will also come with educational materials for use in the classroom.

They very much did originally intend it to be used for educational/development purposes, which was their reasoning for not including the MPEG-2 licenses out of the box. While they are providing this as an add-on, I don't think they will be going for all-out consumer focussed any time soon
