I would ask some friends/family if they have any older PC speakers laying around that they would give to you...I know that I have a couple sets in the basement that I would love to get rid of but I feel funny about throwing them away when I know they still work.

If you just want basic speakers, Amazon should be fine. They have ratings which may or may not mean anything.
Have fun with your new computer!
Ubuntu? Impressive.

This. How much would you charge the OP to ship to him?

I ended up donating some old speakers that worked perfectly fine last year. They were gifts from my parents while I was still in college; a nice 2.1 system that came with a case for all three components.

If I still had them I would send them to you for the cost of shipping.

I have some Altec Lansing ones with a subwoofer. Other than my dog chewing one of the cords I then had to replace, they sound great. Probably 10 years old.

how about this:

get a jbl charge or something similar with bluetooth,
put a bluetooth usb dongle on your pc and woalah,
you can use the jbl outside too

I use mine on my boat, in my van, for picnic or out fishing and at home to play music off my pc too.

I wouldn't use one of these as a permanent PC speaker. You're going to have it connected to AC power at all times, and the built-in Li-Ion battery in these portable speakers does not like sitting at 100% SOC non-stop. Also, some of these speakers produce buzz/hum when you have them plugged into AC power and try to play something through them.

But there are plenty of non-battery / AC only powered PC speakers on Amazon. I'm sure the OP can find something he likes.

The Logitech speakers I purchased about eight years ago are still in service.

Not worth it to me to ship such low value items.
I just suspect that the OPer might know somebody like me with functional PC speakers sitting in his basement who would love to get rid of them with the knowledge that they would be used...

Jeez, tossing that in with another Amazon order to hit $25 (if not a Prime member) is probably even easier than bothering to find a local version of me with speakers he's dying to give away...$9 is like the cost of one really fancy coffee at Stabbuck's!
Good find....

They have many of these at your local Thrift Store(s).

I volunteer at a local thrift store and we get all kinds of computer equipment donated.
I work the "electrical" dept and I check anything donated that has a line cord or battery.
I am amazed at the great speakers that come in ...most work like new and sell for $5.00.

All items (except electrical) are sold as is/ no return. If you get your Altec Lansing speakers home and don't like the way they work you can return them
