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?
Dell Tends to put Fritz Chips on the Optiplex Line because thats the series that Government Buys.
The TPM security feature is available on the following platforms:
|System Name||Model Number|
|Latitude™||D410, D420, D610, D620, D810, D820|
|OptiPlex™||GX280 (Desktop and Tower only), GX620, 740, 745, 745c, 755|
|Dell Precision™||M20, M65, M70, M90|
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.
I would look at hardware Encryption at the Drive level.
