Long story short, none.
There is no difference in the final installed system. I'd be shocked if 
there will be any ;)

I'm sure you know why there is an alternate ISO and why there is desktop 
ISO = difference in the installer :)

That is all :)

That is why for example Ubuntu GNOME don't have alternate as we don't 
target the low power machines :)
