Visual Studio Express vs. Pro

Okay.. maybe I should be able to figure this out myself, but I'm trying to convince my boss that he needs to buy me VS Pro (or something) instead of making me use the Express versions.. so far not much luck :/ anyone know a few good arguments? It's partly based on my egoism though ;) I'm too lazy to hassle with multiple projects and applications.. the use is mainly web development, but something is telling me I'd rather have precompiled webs than make the code compile on-the-fly.. there are also some businessclasses that I'd rather see compiled than uploaded and have them compiled on the fly in .NET 2.0.. Also, the current project is a 2003, but I've already started to convert it to a VS2005 project; in 2003 I wouldn't have had a choice, but I do now.

Input is appreciated. Good arguments to convince my boss are too ;)
