Hi everyone,

 

Lenovo ThinkPads slacked off of the quality of the speakers they put in their laptops. I love my laptop, it is a work horse for my needs. However, I can't get rich sound, only "tinney". What are some of the options out there today so that I can achieve good quality sound.

 

Thank you in advance.

A Soundbar , or Portable Powered Speakers - to many to choose from , Google around your area and Price Range to suit.

I`d still go with my suggestion above if you can source them from Ebay and still available , they run at 30 Watts and give great sound for price.

 Dell A525 Zylux Multimedia 2.1-Channel PC Speakers w/Subwoofer 30W TH760 CF093

 

The other System listed by Nickos are only 10 Watts , so the choice is yours , or something else that suits your needs.

Maybe Santa might surprise you ........Ho Ho Ho !!

Headphones, because less expensive than other external speakers.  Not so good if you want to project the sound so others in the room can hear it.

Well Santa came through. I have got an awesome bluetooth speaker. It has great sound, volume, very portable, waterproof and you can link more of the speakers together if you want to.
