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 audio—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.
