What benefits to using Win10 IoT vs Win10 Pro?

I've seen in the forum a lot of talk of Windows 10 IoT on the Up. What benefits / drawbacks / differences would there be from running a customised Win10Pro image with all the redundant services and processes taken out, compared to running the IoT version?

I've seen arguments for IoT use cases that Win10 IoT has networking and enterprise infrastructure benefits over Linuix / Android, but on this platform it's my opinion that you'd be crazy not to use a more complete OS that can run anything you want and customize it to your use, unless I'm missing something - does IoT use less power for example (with equivalent base OS), is there better hardware support in IoT? Am I missing something?
