Pretty much any laptop will play MP3 files and I find VLC player (available free) is adequate as software. But you still need an amplifier and I use our our old Comber machine. My mobile phone is even more portable than a laptop and can play MP3 files too!

A fiddle would be easier on your back, much lighter than Sylvia's
accordion! Infinitely variable speed, reasonable volume, they last for
hundreds of years and are extremely low-tech, although there's a bit of a
learning curve involved... :-)
Seriously, here most teachers seem to be migrating to laptops or tablets
with external speakers. CDs are on their way out although I would expect
that they'll stick around in the niche markets like RSCDS for a while yet.
Longer-term you'll want something that can handle digital music files.
Can't help you with specific brands (I'm in the Apple camp myself). -Steve
