Samson Go Mic Compact USB Microphone
This is a great computer microphone that is perfect for use with a laptop. It's small and folds up with a case for easy storage and transportation. There are two settings available with this microphone, so you can use cardioid for recording a single person, or omnidirectional when you want to capture a group of people all around the microphone. Audio quality with this microphone is excellent thanks to 16-bit sound with 44.1 kHz audio resolution, and it includes a headset output plug for listening while recording. It doesn't include a stand, which is one of its few flaws, but you can easily clip it onto a laptop or the edge of a table or desk during use. This microphone uses a USB connection, with simple plug and play set up, and functions with both Macs and PCs. Its small design and simple set up also make this a great choice for use with Voice Over IP programs or chat software.
