TPM On Upcoming Desktops - For BitLocker Encryption

Guys,

I bought an XPS-8300, thanks God I didn't upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for Bitlocker because the XPS-8300 does not have TPM.

My question is, when the new systems come out next year, most likely the XPS-9100 gets upgraded probrably to XPS-9300 with the Ivy Bridge chipset, USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt, will this or any other system include a TPM for encryption?

Thanks

Re: TPM On Upcoming Desktops - For BitLocker Encryption

Thanks for the answer, only problem is that I want a more multimedia oriented desktop, and these are business desktops. I mean it makes no sense, every consumer desktop should have it even if it's an upgrade, I will pay for it. Data should be encrypted. I don't want nobody looking into my baby pictures if I have a home robbery etc.
