Interesting, I can see where the 20HD would also be included in that bulletin since it covers so many machines of the same time period, even though it isn't referenced in that document at all.  Neither 20HD nor the N1QUJ13W BIOS ID.  Thanks!

Yeah, I have been following that bulletin from the beginning and still no listing for the HD model of the T470...weird.
