Logitech has debuted an all-in-one laptop accessory with integrated stereo speakers, a built-in fan and a wide padded base.
Company spokesperson Denis Pavillard explained that nearly 50 percent of laptop users were dissatisfied with the sound quality of their integrated speakers.
"Unlike most laptop speakers, the Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 offers two built-in high-definition speakers with 2-inch high-performance neodymium drivers," explained Pavillard.
"Specially designed for notebook computers, the stereo speakers are precisely positioned on either side of your laptop to give you rich sound and powerful bass. And, because they connect through a single USB cable, there's no cable clutter or the hassle of moving and setting up external speakers."
Pavillard added that the $80 Lapdesk is easy to set up and use.
"Just plug in the single USB cable and play movies, music, online videos, and more in rich, full stereo sound – there's no software to install and no need for batteries. [And] the Speaker Lapdesk N700 [also] offers volume controls for the speakers, [along with] an on/off switch for the fan."
