Laptop with dial-up modem?

Neighbours of mine are looking at replacing their desktop with a laptop (for use around the house, not for transportability).

However, they still use dial-up Internet access.

Do (many) laptops come with an integrated dial-up modem these days or would they need to consider a USB device?

Also, as the lappie would come with Vista, does Vista still readily support use of a dial-up modem?

My new Dell has a built in modem. If you check the specifications of those that they are interested in, you will see the modem there, if one is included.
