Plantronics will be releasing Bluetooth Headphones shortly - they include rechargeable batteries that will last for an estimated 10 hours of listening time:
I first experienced the buzzing sound this morning, when my XPS2 started up from hibernation. I hit to turn all wireless devices off but the buzzing did not stop. I then hit again which turned on both Wifi and Bluetooth and the buzzing stopped. I suspect that Bluetooth may have already been turned off when the unit came back on from hibernation and that the second sequence actually turned it on, thereby stopping the buzzing sound.
I bought a Lapinator Plus a month ago or so and am very happy with it. Plenty of room for the XPS2/9300, comfortable and does a great job keeping my legs nice and cool. Check it out at http://www.lapinator.com/ make sure that you look at the Lapinator Plus - I am pretty sure that the regular Lapinator is too narrow for the XPS2/9300.
I received my XPS2 yesterday afternoon and it came with an LG screen (LPL0000). Very modest light leakage at the very bottom of the screen. There are some sparkles but they really do not bother me at all - I probably wouldn't have even noticed them had I not read about them on this forum. I find that my prior laptop, a Toshiba 5205-703 (UXGA screen) had more sparkles than the XPS2. Right now, I'd say that this one is a keeper.

It's a Toshiba Sat. 5205-703 with a 15" 1600x1200 display that's over three years old; matte not glossy, of course. Powerstrip identifies the display as 'TOS5088'.
Bottom line: it sparkles at least as much as the XPS with the light green background. I also think the whites aren't as white... but the matte vs. glossy may be...
My XPS2 shipped yesterday and this morning I got confirmation from UPS that it will be delivered via GROUND service on Monday. I had a free upgrade to NEXT DAY shipping from Dell - probably would have still gotten here on Monday even with NEXT DAY.
Does anyone know for a fact where the XPS2 is assembled? Most say Malaysia but apparently some I9300 owners report that their units were assembled in Ireland. Now the author of this thread is implying (from what Dell has said) that the units are assembled in Austin. If they are assembled in Austin and some units have passed the boxing phase, we should be hearing of tracking numbers being released today.
