Now that you or someone you know is back at college, you may be thinking about buying a set of desk speakers for the laptop or desktop. Even if college doesn't apply to you, desk speakers are great to have in case you need something with more power than your built in computer speakers. Obviously there are a wide variety of speakers out on the market, but when it comes to speakers, like anything else, you get what you pay for. Altec Lansing desk speakers make a variety of quality computer speakers for a fair price. The magnetics and housings in these speakers have been recognized for containing high-end materials. Logitech portable speakers are also a great product for the money, known for having a richer quality sound. Bose Companion speaker series are also a good buy for the quality, though you will be having to spend slightly more than you might expect for desk speakers. In short. like we mentioned, you get what you pay for and while it may be tempting to go for a lesser quality and cheaper alternative, you will likely be dissapointed with the result.
