Select is US$499, and Student is US$99. You don't get betas with the latter, but you do get final versions of the OS, including a full installer DVD for every point release, which is nice. When Apple was doing annual releases of the OS for $129 and up, it was a no-brainer way to save some cash on the upgrades and get some perks in the bargain.
