    I'm looking to update my peripherals on my laptop. My laptop spends 80% of it's time on my desk and I spend most of that time playing games, listening to music and internet browsing

    I want a pair of speakers to fulfill my music needs. I thought a few weeks ago that 5.1 would be the best "because there are more of them" but now I think that high end ish 2.1 > low end 5.1

    I've seen the Logitech Z-4 and they are around £44 on Amazon which is a bargain!

    As far as Keyboards go, I run on a dual screen setup. And I find that when gaming, I have to take longer breaks then normal when doing long sessions because of eye strain by sitting to near the screen. So by using a external keyboard, I would be further away from the screen and therefore prevent eye strain

    So I LOVE the look of the Razer Lycosa and on scan it's £53 which brings my total under budget

    What other speaker and keyboards would you suggest?

    Appreciate your help

    minus the price difference, how do the x230's compare with the z-4?

    thanks for your keyboard suggestion

    X230's are more powerful, apparently they aren't as clear as the Z4s though as the bass is overpowering (sometimes, that CAN be a bad thing :eek:).

    I have the Z4s, they are simply excellent. Buy them! :p

    So that leaves a budget of £50 for the keyboard.. This Saitek gaming keyboard is backlit and £37

    Creative T20's would be my choice for speaker, after that keyboards are pretty subjective, but £50 sounds like a mad amount of money to spend on one.

    I just bought a set of Z-4s after many recommendations, they have not arrived yet tho.

    Got mine from Scan for £52 with free delivery. Unfortunately that means i have to wait up to 5 days to receive them.
