The former has more rights. For running programs, accessing files, installing - a lot of the difference is based on what rights one is given and the other is not.  The typical user gets rights closer to guest, and is expected to call support a lot. The power user is knowledgeable, needs less support, so you let them do more.

Power Users possess most administrative powers with some restrictions.  Thus, Power Users can run legacy applications in addition to certified applications

Users are prevented from making accidental or intentional system-wide changes.  Thus, Users can run certified applications, but not most legacy applications

(I do not necessarily agree with that. Our legacy apps are for common users, our powered ones get easier shot at new-fangled technology)
