Definitely the way to go.

I think most of them these days also have bluetooth built in, allowing you to set up speakers or headsets or whatever in a clean way.

Actually, setting up "the rig" is not a problem, because I have a dock. Dell has been excellent about keeping the same dock connector on all laptops for a long time now. I simply dropped it into the dock and my big monitor, clicky keyboard, trackball, speakers, and headphones all came up.

I have a decent headset. It is wireless but non-bluetooth. It's a Plantronics Savi W720. This headset wouldn't have been my first choice from a comfort point of view, but it's reasonably comfortable, and there was one available in the office for the taking. The cool thing about this headset is that the base attaches simultaneously to the computer via USB, to my desktop phone using its headset port, and to my mobile phone using bluetooth (so I guess it technically does have bluetooth, but not to the headset itself).

Which ultrabook did you get? I've been running a Dell 7370 (a bit of an upgrade from the XPS, but a similar chassis) for about 9 months now. It's decent, but it doesn't feel like a computer if you know what I mean.

I have the 7470, which has a 14" screen. My last two laptops had 17" screens so I'm still getting used to it. When it's docked at my desk it is faster than the machine I had before, mainly because of the SSD. On my lap it feels a bit less-than-computer-like, and the small keyboard does slow me down. It's an acceptable compromise considering the light weight. As a daily driver without an external monitor/keyboard it would probably drive me crazy.
