Professional offers a lot of good options over Home Premium, including HomeGroups, XP Virtualization, and others.

Why wouldn't it?
Isn't Pro better then Home Premium
And Home Premium is all about media and stuff so...

I could be like 100% wrong though, so I have no idea.

I think all versions of Windows 7 (HP, Pro, Ultimate) come with Media Center. If I am not mistaken, it became standard in/after Vista.

I can only think of two reasons:
1) You really want to encrypt your drive using the MS solution BitLocker.
2) You want to easily install and use multiple languages.

I have not even seen promotion for 'extras' as with Vista.

BitLocker isn't really a benefit IMO since there are a lot of free alternatives like TrueCrypt.

As I have said before, Pro/Ultimate have HomeGroups and XP Virtualization.
