Anyone have a suggestion for a decent, sub-$100 set of desktop speakers that are powered via UBS (i.e. no separate power cable)? Just need something better for my Macbook than the built in speakers. Thanks.

That's a difficult question. I wouldn't have a clue as to what to recommend you in the realm of USB-powered speakers. However, there is the BassJump 2 Subwoofer (http://twelvesouth.com/products/bassjump/), which just really adds some nice low-end to your built in speakers. It is USB-Powered, and only $69.

You do realize that a USB cable might supply only 1 watt to each speaker, if even that. What about a battery powered speaker?
