AIS for Laptop

I downloaded an app for my android phone that does a nice job of showing AIS signals on the NOAA charts I have loaded. I'm amazed that I can get this, basically, for free. I have considered replacing my VHF with one equiped with AIS but it seems that using a laptop might be the best option due to screen size etc. Does anyone know of, and could recommend, an AIS reciever that plugs into a Windows laptop that is relatively inexpensive? Thanks.
