Logitech (http://www.logitech.com) has unveiled the US$59.95 Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550, a lapdesk that the company says creates a theater-like entertainment experience around the home. A follow-on to the Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N700, which is designed for laptops up to 16-inches, the Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 is for laptops that are 14.1-inches or smaller.

The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 features integrated stereo speakers that sit on either side of your laptop. The lapdesk’s 4-layer, heat-shielding design, combined with the soft, air-mesh fabric, helps make laptop use more comfortable, according to Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for laptop accessories.

The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550’s angled base raises your laptop screen to a comfortable viewing position, and integrated foldable bumpers on the lapdesk surface help keep your computer in place, he adds. There’s no software to install; you simply plug a single cable into your laptop’s USB port to power the speakers.
