Try changing the brightness and see if the noise changes. LCD backlights are a common source of noise, although I think the 10v has a LED backlight, which I expect is better than a conventional fluorescent.
Or it could be the CPU. Sometimes my Core 2 Duo CPU makes a noticeable amount of noise.
Try scrolling a big web page and listening for changes in the noise (scrolling being an easy way to provoke CPU usage). For more info, google "cpu whine".

Also, if you have SpeedStep via VoodooPower (Mac) then it can cause this... not sure if SpeedStepping in general can cause this or if it is the implementation that the Voodoo team uses.
