Altec Lansing video speakers: way better than watching your laptop

CNET previews Altec Lansing iMV712 speaker system at CES 2007.

Altec Lansing says its new video-iPod-compatible iMV712 speaker system, just released here at CES, belts out a "genuine movie theater experience." Hyperbole aside, we love the idea of portable speakers with an 8.5-inch LCD screen, especially for dorm rooms, kitchens, or anywhere else you don't have (or don't want) a TV, but where you just might spend some quality time catching up on The Office. Two 3-inch speakers, a 4-inch subwoofer, and a remote control give this portable getup an edge over your laptop any time. (Anyone else tired of propping notebooks on their knees in bed?)
