I have been on the hunt for better speakers for a good while.
The internal speakers on my netbook just aren't that good, and I have to make leaps and bounds in order to hook up my old desktop speakers to this little guy.
This is why I'm intrigued by the Lenovo speaker M0520. It's extremely compact, can be powered through your USB port, and can even be used with your smartphone or mp3/media player!
Now, I don't know about you, but I have about 40,000 wires tangled up in my house. The M0520 comes with speaker wire spools, so you can easily store it when you're not using it!
And from now until 5/21 (Monday), these speakers will be ON SALE for $11.99.
I'd love to use the speaker to hook up to my smartphone when I want to listen loud and proud to Pandora, and I could even take it to a little private study carrel in a library and use it to watch videos or listen to music while I'm looking through the library databases. It's very portable, which means I can also take it on trips and easily pack it and it the wire spools are a MAJOR bonus with me (again, tagled wires – UGH!)
My only reervation is that this doesn't have wireles capabilities. I'd love to get some excellent bluetooth speakers for my netbook and I have yet to find them. But I shall continue my search, and maybe Lenovo is working on a solution for me!
