Logitech announced a new netbook and laptop accessory today aimed at addressing the weak sound systems typically found in netbooks and small laptops. The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 is like other notebook lap desks in that it keeps your laptop off of your actual lap, but unlike many others it also has a built-in speaker system that connects to your laptop or netbook by USB.
The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 is a smaller version of the popular Speaker Lapdesk N700 which you my have seen strolling the aisles of your local Best Buy. The N550 is aimed at notebooks 14.1″ and smaller.
The Lapdesk N550 doesn’t just address sound, Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for laptop accessories at Logitech says that Lapdesks are the unsung heroes of the laptop and netbook world,â€ explaining that,The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 solves the two complaints people most often report about their laptops and netbooks â€” poor audio quality and laptop heat. Using this one product can dramatically improve the experience people have with their laptops.â€
The Speaker Lapdesk N550 is compatible with laptops up to 14.1″ and works with Windows and Mac operating systems. It comes with a 3-year warranty.
The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 will be available later this month for a suggested retail price of $59.99
