The Orbit Stereo might not be the most powerful laptop speakers in the world, but they're sleek, unobtrusive, and they've pretty much gotta be an improvement over the tinny noise that's coughing out of your keyboard about now. A single USB cord tethers the pair to your PC, and they snap together for easy transit. They'll be available this month for 50 bucks. [Altec Lansing]
Altec makes a lot of meh speakers so I will be a bit skeptical. Logitech z515 with bluetooth and usb wireless support is actually pretty cool. The sound quality is sorta meh, but convenience factor just trumps any tiny speaker I have ever owned. Oh, it's about a size of brick so it is not super tiny.
