Easier Password for Bitlocker

I just starting working with Bitlocker on Windows 7 Ent.  During setup bitlocker provided me a recovery key that I saved to a USB. That USB is currently required by the system to get into the laptop.

Is there a way to setup bitlocker so that the user would just enter a password after turning on the laptop? I'm looking for a very simple implementation.

Yes there is, as long as the device features a TPM chip, you can activate it and will only need a 4-digit-PIN afterwards to access the laptop. Read http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/gg463165.aspx , it is for vista, but similar.

Would the Key via USB still have to be present?
