This retails for right around 35 dollars and as you can see clips on to the top of your laptop you can also set it on a table beside your laptop. But a lot of people put it on their laptop is a little screw mechanism on the back allows you to fasten it securely and tighten it down. 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. Sounds a little -- for music even though that says there's a base there's a little database but it's not great for music. That said it does play louder than your typical internal laptop speakers and also sells better. And it's a pretty decent deal for 35 dollars and David Carnoy and that is the Philips. Sound borrow laptops yeah.
