8.2. Faxing

Mac OS X's built-in faxing feature saves you the price of a real fax machine, plus all the paper and cartridges that go with it. Faxing from the Mac also eliminates the silly ritual of printing something out just so that you can feed it into a fax machine. And because your fax originates directly from the heart of Mac OS X instead of some crummy 200-dpi fax-machine scanner, it blesses your recipient with a good-looking document.

Here's the basic idea: When faxes come in, you can read them on the screen, opt to have them printed automatically, or even have them emailed to you so that you can get them wherever you are in the world. (Try that with a regular fax machine.) And sending a fax is even easier on a Mac than it is on a regular fax machine. You just use the File → Print command, exactly like you're making a printout of the onscreen document.
