I often have moments of brilliance upon first waking up in the morning. This morning, I woke up and glanced over at my XPS M1330 laptop which I had placed by the side of my bed before going to sleep the following evening.
Then I saw it… Clear as day.
If you look at the XPS logo upside down, it spells out sex. Subtle, but amusing. I’m sure this played a factor when the Dell R&D (Research & Development) team were deciding on what to call the product line and how to craft the logo.
Or, is it just me? Do I have a single-track mind? Do I wake up each morning thinking about sex? I’ll let you be the judge.
Here is a close-up of the XPS logo:
And here is the XPS logo upside down:
Hehehe. I’ve got to say, the XPS M1330 strikes a near perfect balance between aesthetic appeal and functionality. As such, it is the perfect slim and sexy laptop for a slim and sexy guy like me.
I may have even had something to do with the making of this laptop. A few days after Dell launched Idea Storm, a forum where customers can make suggestions and requests, I posted this: Super Sleek Ultra Sexy Dell Laptop. I don’t know if my suggestion had anything to do with the creation of the XPS M1330, but I’d like to think so. The XPS M1330 represents a radical departure from the boxy, uninspired designs typical of Dell. It received high marks in a number of professional reviews and Dell had a hard time keeping up with demand when the M1330 first started selling. I’m very happy with the laptop so far.
Speaking of brilliant moments, after waking up and noticing this, I grabbed a long sleeve shirt with t-shirt still embedded that was lying next to my bed. While standing up, I put my arms through the sleeves and then tried to pull my head through. No love. I tried once more while stumbling across the floor and again my face was greeted by a wall of cotton. I looked inside with both arms still in the sleeves. Somehow I had gotten my right arm through the neck hole of the t-shirt. Simply Brilliant!
