    I should be receiving my 15" PowerBook by the end of this week, early next week, and I was wondering how good the speakers are on it. It is a laptop, so I don't expect too good of onboard speakers, but I wanted to know what everyone thought of them. I've been looking in to getting some external speakers, but I wanted to see what you all thought.

    For listening to music definitely get external speakers.

    The 15" PB has decent speakers. They are on par with any other comparable laptop in terms of sound quality, but they don't get very loud. I use mine in really low volume environments for movies or music, but any background noise will easily drown them out.

    Speakers are OK if you are playing music that does not have much bass in it. They can sound a bit 'tinny' sometimes but realising that they are only 1 inch diameter speakers, they do the job well.
