If it's -- wide variety of laptops -- it's about eleven inches long. Andy is compact comes with a carrying case. And what the key features about it is it is a USB powered speaker. The USB cord wrapped around the speakers goes away actually in the -- which is kind of cool. And forms this little white border around it. One of the small downside the speaker is that there is no -- Hillary inputs you can attach another audio device -- it. And it does happy powered by USB. Is not battery powered. As far as the sound goes you're not gonna get great sound out of this guy it is a in small speaker. It is better for watching videos we found that music.
