The system needs to have a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip to support
BitLocker.  I think most new systems come with it.

You don't need a TPM (and remember, that's a TPM 1.2 chip...I've seen
systems recently for sale with a 1.1) chip, but you do get additional
options if you do have one.

It's not in most new systems, but many business class systems now come
with the chip.

I think it makes sense to make sure you have one, since it will open
up options if you do, and you don't have to use it.
