Can you tell me if they play nicely with a laptop?

Simply put, I have a pair of PC350s for my desktop, Love them to pieces, and need a nice headset to go with my new M17x which will be here shortly, One problem however is the 150 ohm impedence on them, which means they unfortunately cant be driven by a laptop (I checked on someone's XPS17, They're driven OK but its really pushing its built in sound)

However, the PC360s are one, On sale for about $200 right now (Whereas the PC350 Special Editions are $250..) and also they're 50 ohm instead of 150 ohm, Which means they can be driven easier, I know the XPS17 can drive my HD280s just fine (And actually sounds pretty good with them) and they're 64 ohm, but i figured Id ask you all and see what you think

I dont PARTICULARLY want to add an external USB sound card RIGHT NOW, I might in the future, its just that right now its either get a "gaming" headset from Razer or something, deal without a microphone/use the built in laptop microphone (Not really my first choice) or get the PC360s

Yes I know they're open, Thats not an issue, its being used around the house, Dont need noise isolation i think... Just want to know if they play nicely and sound fairly good with a laptop
