Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 Puts Quality Sound in Your Lap

Logitech_Speaker_Lapdesk_N700_hiIf you’ve been wishing a high-quality sound system would just fall in your lap, your wish may be coming true very soon. Logitech introduced its Speaker Lapdesk N700, the company’s first all-in-one laptop accessory with integrated stereo speakers, a built-in fan and a wide padded base. The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 is specifically designed for notebook computers and features two built-in high-definition speakers with 2-inch high-performance neodymium drivers for a rich sound quality– so you can watch movies or listen to music with a home theater style sound.

Logitech also incorporated a fan and protective grill into the device to prevent your laptop from overheating. “More and more people around the world are enjoying fantastic entertainment on their laptops — but with mediocre sound and comfort,” said Denis Pavillard, Logitech vice president of product marketing for laptop accessories. “In fact, according to our research nearly 50 percent of laptop users report being dissatisfied with the sound quality of the built-in speakers. The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 helps transform your laptop into a private theater in the cozy confines of your lap.”

The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 is expected to be available in the U.S. in February and in Europe in March for about $79.99.
