If you think there is something wrong then bring it back. No use obsessing.

I forgot to mention my battery is currently at 28%. Could that be why?

You can't really do a benchmark on your MB if you're running on batteries.
Keep in mind, when you're running on batteries, your MB is not using your CPU's full potential since it's on power saving mode.
Too do a proper benchmark, your MB must be plugged in to take advantage of your CPU's full power and your graphic card's power.
I for one do not follow benchmarks anymore. I used to when I used to build my own gaming rig with all the bells and whistles.
But to be honest, you will never, ever put your MB in such extreme.
If you're still not satisfied with your MB's performace, you can either follow or ignore my or sig's comments.

You have 14 days to return for refund...follow Bimmer and run the benchmark on line power, if you still are not satisfied with it, do what sig says and take it back. Machine is way too expensive to be less than fully satisfied.

Yeah, thanks! I plugged it in and my score shot up to 12,300.

Alex, I remember seeing your posts a few days ago and you were saying you were going to go with the 2.6GHz and 16GB of ram. Why'd you change it?

I don't remember posting that. I always knew I was going to get the 8GB because I didn't want to order online, and I don't have the extra $200 to shell out.
