Summary: These speakers are definately better than my laptop's but it does'nt stand properly. I had to stick it onto the wall because it kept falling over; so annoying. Anyway I need more power so I'm shopping for a subwoofer for no luck though.
Summary: Don't get over-excited by the great reviews here. Yes, these are nice for a notebook and your desktop. They are well packaged. They have all the right connections and the finish is excellent. Compared to the sound from your notebook, the sound is so much better.
Summary: I bought these speakers for my wifes laptop(dell 9300).First I must say that they are very attractive and very easy to carry.Also the fact that they do not need any additional power source other than the usb port makes them even more portable.
Summary: If you are seeking portable speakers that can deliver decent sound and a eye catching add on this are the speakers for you, they sound very well but if you would like bass power and clarity you should try perhaps a 5.1 speaker set..
Excerpt: I bought these to go with my MacBook pro that I had just purchased too. I have already had problems with the Powerbook not powering USB powered external hard disks, but the MacBook pro worked fine with these. I bought these in the hope that they would work and they did not.
