If you’re looking to improve the sound system of your laptop we’ve got an interesting item for you. The elaborately named Pyramat Lap Blaster Laptop Sound Booster is a platform with two 4W full-range speakers that fits under your machine. For those of you who understand these things, the peak power is 30 watts, signal-to-noise ratio is 70dB, while the frequency response is 220-20,000 Hz.
