Can't seem to locate/confirm latest BIOS for R61i type 7650-CDU

Hello,

 

I have a Lenovo R61i type 7650-CDU.
15.4".
Factory installed with Windows XP Pro.  Currently running XP Pro SP3.

 

I want to make sure I am running the most current BIOS.

 

Right now my BIOS info. is:
BIOS Version 2.15 (7PETB5WW)
BIOS Date (Year-Month-Day) 2008-05-08

 

The drivers and software page is
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT037648

 

In the BIOS section, I have checked every download's README but do not see my type in any of them.

 

How can I confirm I have the latest BIOS now, or if not, where is the version I need?

 

Can you please advise.

 

Thanks!

Years of digging through Lenovo (and previously IBM) support sites count for something on occasion...:smileyvery-happy:
