These are probably as good as you will get unless you have an audio card which will accept 2.1 sound; choose the collect at store option and they are yours for less than £7.

You'll be lucky to make any, if at all, savings on the e-Bay offer after adding p and p even if you top the bidding - basic price is under £40.

For comparison (or even purchase) click here for retail prices of Creative speakers - the INC VAT prices mentioned include FREE delivery. Some TravelSound models are featured near the bottom.

If your laptop can take 2.1 speakers (which will include a subwoofer - better sound but not very portable), I would recommend them over a bog standard 2-speaker setup. Stick to a known good make like Creative/Logitech/Altec Lansing & you should be OK.

Some time ago I purchased a lovely Creative 2.1 set off Ebay which cost £20 delivered (use it with a desktop PC).

I recently got those travelsound speakers for my mp3 player from Amazon for £30 delivered and am very happy with them.
