Damn rim...

I have got alex rims TD17's on my bike now. I have got the rear rim that is just slightly out of round. When I spin it I can see it bend out a bit. Its true enough to not be able to feel it on the ride. It doesnt bump or jiggle or anything that I can really feel. I can very VERY slightly hear it when I'm on the street. The main question is should I get fix it or just let it be. If I do try to fix it should I go with a new rim or take it to the LBS and they can tighten spokes or what ever.

Why wouldn't you get it trued? Every time you land on that spot, you stand a really good chance of knocking it even further out. Then you have a serious problem, and have no choice but to get a new rim. If you plan on getting a new rim anyway, I say you should try and learn to true on this rim.
