Best powered mini monitors w/out sub

I am looking for powered speakers small enough to set up with my computer at home and pack in a suit case and take on the road as well. Remember no sub. New or used less than $400.
Well, if you could afford to go a little more, you wouldn't do better than the Paradigm Active Studio 20 available right now on audiogon for 750.
Here are some Swans. May not fit in your suitcase.
Acoustic Energy AEGOS sub/sat system for $400.
Celtic66, How to the Acoustic Energy AEGOS speakers sound without the sub? Doesn't the sub have the amp inside so they are inseparable as a 2.1 system? I can't carry the sub in my suitcase on trips. And that's what I need.
