Bluetooth doesn't come stock on Bestbuys version of this laptop. Has anyone upgraded bluetooth on to theirs? Is it even possible?

In any event, you can't add dedicated internal bluetooth. The best (and easiest) way to add it is to upgrade your WLAN card to something like the Intel 6230.

Intel 6150 is installed on this model. No BT I believe.

I believe you. It's a simple and cheap upgrade to replace that card with a combo card, if you want bluetooth.
