What are these ASA "Editions"?

I am looking into purchasing some ASAs and found that they are trying to sell them as "editions". IE "Content Security Edition" "IPS Edition" "SSL/IPsec Edition" "Business Edition".

Where can I find detailed info on the differences (preferably all in one document) between these editions? I found a web page for each and printed off the "brochure" that each offered but it talks in general high level useless sales terms about what each package is.

I am looking for specific benefits and drawbacks of each package.

Also do I have to buy one of these editions or can I just buy an ASA with the options I want?

You can buy them as just firewalls and then add in the features you want. The bundles are just to make life easier.

Also,

some of the "editions" are indicative of the SSM modules that go into the ASA. Each ASA can only take 1 SSM module so an IPS edition and a content filtering edition are mutually exclusive.
