Speakers/Amp system to connect laptop up to?

I am increasingly playing music on my laptop & need some decent speakers.

I also play the occassional DVD/bit torrent video download - connecting my laptop to my flat screen TV.

Should I just buy some speakers to plug into my laptop or a Amplifier/Hi-Fi system?

Would welcome your advice & any product recommendations.

Just buy some active (i.e. powered) computer speakers - the sound quality from your laptop will almost certainly be shown up mercilessly on a hi-fi setup.

When my IBM 2.1 speakers packed up after many years' use recently, I bought a set of Logitech X-140 2.0 speakers for £20 from Staples, on the basis that if they didn't sound OK I could get a refund.

They've proved better than expected for the price, although I was aware that Logitech is an excellent brand and will do for the moment.
