Laptops are great and all, especially the super lightweight compact ones that you can take anywhere. There is a trade-off, of course. Several, in fact. The display is typically smaller (especially if you’ve grown accustomed to 20-inch widescreen behemoths) and the sound quality is usually not up to snuff. Laptop speakers aren’t the loudest things in the world, and that’s why you may want to look into something like the Sony VGP-USP1 USB speaker set.
As you can probably guess, it just jams into your VAIO and blasts out the tunes from its pair of 2W speakers. Weighing in at 520 grams and measuring 270 x 120 x 30mm, the VGP-USP1 may not replace your home theater, but it will certainly be a step up from what your laptop can do on its own.
