WIDI Compatibility

Hello,

 

I recently purchased (should be arriving today) a Lenovo Y470 laptop with an i7-2630QM processor which is not on the WIDI compatibility list on the Intel website. Is it  possible that the list is outdated as it lists the i7-2620QM as being compatible or is my 2630QM simply not compatible? The laptop spec sheet lists the wireless card as a Intel 1000 BGN, so I should be ok there.

 

Also, the Intel page states that WIDI must be preloaded from the manufacturer. Im not sure if the program is preloaded from Lenovo (or why that even matters) as I dont have the laptop yet, but I dont see it anywhere in the sales literature, so if the program is not preloaded, but my hardware is compatible, can I simply just download the program from Intel?

 

TIA
