if you notice, the line without the vm is for essentials, not standard; essentials doesn't support hyper-v

here is a comparison of windows 2012 editions

Seth dealt with the OS version differences,

The $333 is for setup and 2012 std media included

Depending on what OS you want running as VMs, you may need to buy those media sets as well.
