Hi I have an LG soundbar and the model is NB3730A. I found a link to the manual but it does not answer my question. But here is a link to it http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-NB3730A#

My question is can I connect the soundbar to my laptop using the USB connector plug in the front if I buy a male-male usb cable?

Not sure if thats what its for (to be used to connect to a computer) but figured this would be the best place to ask!

male-male usb cable?
No. The USB slot is for playing music from a flash drive etc. (See Page 32)

To connect to a laptop, connect it wirelessly (WiFi).
or use a Standard Ethernet Cable ....

See Page 17 onwards in the manual.

You can add bluetooth to your laptop quite cheaply with one of these
