Logitech's $99 AudioHub is what it looks like: a none-too-portable speaker bar for you to prop your laptop against. It's got a built-in 3-port USB hub, too. The smart thing is that both the audio and the USB connect to the laptop with the same single USB cable. If you have a webcam, you can attach it to the removable camera stand (shown in pic after the jump). The real question is, how does it sound? We'll answer that in October when AudioHub ships.Fact Sheet:
