Chances are your laptop comes with a very low priced DAC (Digital to Analog Converter), so adding an external USB (or optical) DAC should improve the audio quality of whatever speakers you get.

I have heard good things about those M-Audio speakers, but I haven't heard them. It looks like they are more than $100 though. I would think almost any external speakers would sound quite a bit better than your laptop speakers.

With a $100 budget, I'd think about getting some headphones.  If I were going to buy speakers at that price, I'd take a look at the swan m-10s from the audio insider.

 

Edit: you could also put this together for under $100: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13645_3-57439115-47/build-your-own-desktop-stereo-for-under-$70/

 

That might be your best bet at that price range.
