Thin is in: Philips Notebook SoundBar
The affordable and well-designed Philips Notebook SoundBar SPA5210B travels well and is a worthy upgrade over your internal laptop speakers.
Road warriors who want to improve the sound of their laptops' speakers have several choices to select from, including Altec's Orbit speaker and various other portable PC speakers; however, many of these can be a bit bulky and aren't the easiest with which to travel.
The speaker comes with a carrying pouch, and Philips designed it to be stowed in the side pocket of a laptop bag. At 11 inches wide by about 2 inches tall by about 1 inch deep and weighing 7.8 ounces, it may not be quite as small as the Orbit, but it gets high marks for portability. What is also good is that the USB cable handles audio and power, which helps cut down on the cord clutter and eliminates the need for batteries.
