Ok... so is anyone else experiencing this? The headphone jack slot has a really odd placement/shape (its on a curved edge). I've tried my unit with two different headphones, and both exhibit a fair amount of static noticeable in quiet music or movies or when just turning on/off music from google music. Is it horrible? Not really. Is it noticeable & extremely irritating from my expensive laptop I've been pining over forever? Absolutely. I'm not quite sure how to handle this either since I bought it from Best Buy online, and its not like they necessarily have stock for an exchange. (I wonder if I can schedule an exchange shipment and not ship mine back until I receive the replacement?). I have quite literally had great luck with everything except this so far... no screen bleed, no update problems, tablet & keyboard work excellent. Thoughts or suggestions? Is the headphone jack supposed to physically go all the way into the jack? Its odd to have a port that doesn't have a sort of "snap" when your headphone is in all the way. Thanks in advance... this has been a great community!
