Argh! Not sure what to do

I'm not sure what I want to do at the moment. The new laptop (temporarily name Benibara) seems fine overall, but late last night while working on his setup, I ran into an audio playback issue. Namely, I'm getting noise on playback. It's not machine noise or interference, but rather an odd buzz possibly associated with certain tones or pitches. I noticed it most with a couple of quieter vocal pieces (like the countertenor piece in Mononoke Hime). >.> So far, I've tried out 3 sets of earbuds and three full headphone sets, and the issue is there with all the headphones. (When I first ran into the problem, I thought I'd somehow managed to kill my earbuds since it sounded bit like I might've blasted them or something, but that wasn't the case.) The issue isn't present when I tried the files and earbuds/headphones on the desktop or two other laptops. >.>

So, now I'm thinking about taking the system back. The problem is, while I've found another system with similar specs (an HP), it's Win7 with a bilingual keyboard. Thoughts? Am I being too picky? Am I crazy to even remotely consider Win7 right after it came out? Any other ideas?
