So I was watching a movie and I guess it seems lame on my tv's speakers. I would like a system with a nice woofer. I also need one with HDMI inputs and outputs. Since I use a PS3 as a Blu-ray player. But anything under 200 would probably do. So what do you recommend?

I, short of budget myself went for an Edifier M1385
I positioned it so that the base (subwoofer / one the makes the loud bass) is under my table [and sometimes under my bed :P coz its best anywhere on the floor) and my 2 satelite speakers (the Left and Right Stereo would face one of my ear. that creates a "surround effect" and you can notice the sound of a movie move from L to Right vv.)
that's for a 2.1 speaker ('coz its all i can afford)
2 = stands for the number of stereo speakers .1 = stands for the subwoofer (if there is)
so 7.1 would mean 7 speakers around you and a single subwoofer down the floor
and the speaker should depend on the size of your computer room (just like Aircon!!) the more open your space is = less bouncing of sound = requires higher volume = more expensive piece of device.
M1385 can cover for the music of a regular sized hotel room. but it's not really the best, i'm saying it's worth your every dime. :))
(there may be some devices w/c are cheaper but they usually have short life/ not offer good quality of sound)
in my opinion at least.

I love this system, it is a great quality, and an even better price: Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker Package.
