Vista Home Premium does not have fax capabilities. They just had give you a reason to buy the higher priced Office version. They are soooosmart. I bought this $1700 HP desktop with a big old 24 inch screen and two 320 gig harddrives with Vista home premium. It plays TV and video games like a champ. But try to run a site or do business with it and forget it. Old Gates got me again. It is back to town tomorrow and out another 3 or 4 hundred dollars.
