Re: xps 8700 bios update

Yes I have already been to that site...but it states that more systems will be added.  That's why I am asking if the xps 8700 will be added in the future since the type of cpu is included in Intels list.

* We are not shown a list of "potential" systems that might be included. Like you, we see the current list of impacted systems.
