SYDNEY, Aust. - 28 September, 2010 - Laptop computers have dramatically changed the way you enjoy entertainment today, but laptop audio hasn't really kept pace. Because you're watching movies, shows and Facebook™ video clips on your laptop, today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the Logitech® Laptop Speaker Z305 and Logitech® Laptop Speaker Z105. Whether you use a Mac® or a Windows®-based laptop or a netbook, the Laptop Speaker Z305 brings you all-around sound in a compact design.
"The speakers built into most laptops are tiny and can't always reproduce powerful audio," said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech's audio business unit. "Whether you're an MP3 junkie or a movie lover, these new laptop speakers make it easy to connect, turn the sound up and lose yourself in the things you love. There's no reason that you can't have quality audio while you're watching the latest YouTube® sensation or the newest Hollywood release on your laptop."
The Z305 and Z105 are Logitech's latest editions to the Z Series range of speakers and compliments its existing audio portfolio of iPod® speaker docks, Ultimate Ears earphones, headsets, gaming headsets & laptop stands with speakers.
