CES 2010: Logitech Launches All-in-one Laptop Accessory

Logitech has introduced the Speaker Lapdesk N700 - an all-in-one laptop accessory with integrated stereo speakers, a built-in fan and a wide padded base.

"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 offers two built-in high-definition speakers with 2-inch high-performance neodymium drivers. Specially designed for notebook computers, the stereo speakers are positioned on either side of the laptop to give rich sound and powerful bass. They connect through a single USB cable, so there’s no cable clutter or the hassle of moving and setting up external speakers.

The viewing angle of the screen and the padded base helps users sit in a more comfortable position. A quiet, efficient fan circulates air under the notebook, and the heat-shielding design helps keep laptop heat off the legs and lap. A grill protects the fan from dust and damage, and rear and bottom air intakes ensure steady, unobstructed airflow.

The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 is easy to set up and use, just plug in the single USB cable and play movies, music, online videos, and more in rich, full stereo sound – there’s no software to install and no need for batteries. The Speaker Lapdesk N700 also offers volume controls for the speakers and an On/Off switch for the fan.

The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700 is expected to be available in the U.S. in February and in Europe in March for a suggested retail price of $79.99 (U.S.).
