Forget headphones; give your desktop or laptop a serious audio upgrade.


Laptop, desktop, Chromebook -- whatever computer setup you've got at home, it's time for a serious audio upgrade. Today only (Sunday, April 25) and while supplies last, Costco has the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Computer Speakers for $99.99. That's $50 off the regular price and the best deal I'm seeing anywhere (including Amazon).

The Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 has been around forever; it's widely regarded as one of the all-time-great computer speaker setups. And with good reason: It cranks out a whopping 200 watts of THX-certified audio goodness via its subwoofer and two satellites.

So if your computer is also the place you play games, watch movies, listen to music and so on, something like this would offer a massive improvement over any built-in speakers you're using.

Needless to say, you'll need a Costco membership to take advantage of this offer. If you don't have your own membership, perhaps you can find a friend to help you make the buy?

Anyway, you'll also need a standard 3.5mm headphone or audio-out jack; the ProMedia can't run off USB. One cool perk, though: One of the satellites includes both headphone and line-out jacks, should the need arise.
