Bluetooth Audio

Can anyone recommend audio speakers that I can drive from a Windows 8 laptop via Bluetooth? Requirements are modest -- mid-fi, rechargeable batteries.

Many thanks in advance.

I use both Mini and Big Jambox depending on location. Mini is suitable in an office or quiet area (while delivering decent bass) while the Big Jambox lives up to its name and works best loud like is needed outdoors.

Both have relatively long lasting batteries. At low volume the Mini Jambox will go for two days.

One annoyance I have with either one is the loud voice prompts whose volume you can't turn down.

I've got a JBL Flip2, fits in the cup holder in the car and use it as a hands free. Sounds good on the desk as well.
