    The speakers in my laptop are lackluster at best. I'm looking for something in $50-$100 range. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Altec Lansing ATP3 (if you can still find them)

    Sub, down firing mid range, and two tweeters per speaker.

    Awesome sound for acoustics, blues, jazz, and some rock. Classical good as well, my wife listens to dance, good for that as well.

    Logitech X-230 speakers. I got them from Amazon for about 40 dollars, and MAN are they worth the money. It has free-standing/wall-mountable speakers and a subwoofer. The acoustics and sound from such a small and inexpensive package is INCREDIBLE. I cannot recommend this system enough.

    big +1 to that. I am using them right now.

    If i'm on my desktop in my room I use my amp. Nothing says awesome like 450w of ampeg.

    I think I'm going with the Logitech x-230 speakers. Sorry, Jiggy, I couldn't tell what speakers you posted.

    I'm sure that it's your wife who listens to dance music. :ninja:
  10. You won't regret it, I can give another +1 to them.

    I have never even put them past 60%. They are loud as hell, sounds nice, and if you have a decent EQ system on your computer, you can make them sound even nicer.
