As good as you think the speakers in your laptop are, the truth is they're not really that good. Not when you compare them to full-on computer speaker systems. We don't care if you have one of those HP laptops with the Beats by Dre audioâ€”nothing is better than listening to music through stand alone speakers. The good thing is that these days you don't have to drop a grip to get good sound. A lot of good systems retail under $200 and, with a little creative shopping, can be found for even less. Of course, if money is no issue, you can get a set like the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 (seen above). We looked through a ton of computer speaker systems and picked 10 we feel are better than the rest. Some are cheap, some are not, but all are great.
