Or at least my retail box version does.
There are a few extra bells and whistles on Ultimate, most notably Bitlocker but generally, it isn't worth the extra cost and anyway, the poster says it's beyond the budget.
The biggest difference between Home Premium and Pro is the ability of Pro to connect to a Domain Controller network. These are business networks and very rarely found in a home system, unless you are logging in remotely to your work system. If you are currently connected to a Workgroup or not networked at all, go for Home Premium and save a few dollars.
Essentially, I'd go with the same version as you have on your Vista system.
