This is a pretty good deal for them these days. I got mine for substantially cheaper but most people don't have that option. Refurbished ones went for around $75 before they got popular, but I haven't seen anything that low in over a year
I don't use them on my computer but spent a lot of time with them. They are very clear sounding and produce a well balanced stereo image. Bass doesn't extend much but does blend well and does a good job at producing what matters. There is some stiff competition at this price point but they do hold their own.
A bit fragile so proper placement is crucial. Tougher than they look, though, just not as tough as any other computer speaker.
For those concerned, Jonathan Ive, noted Apple designer, designed them from a conceptual and cosmetic stand point. Harman Kardon had all the say when it came to materials, dimensions and generally anything that would impact sound quality.
