The Story Of The Ugly Delling

Beauty is in the eye of the encoder benchtest

Once upon a time there was a family of Dells that lived by a pond in the forest. There was a daddy Dell, a mommy Dell, and a flock of baby Dellings. All of the Dellings were sleek, lightweight laptops except one: The Del XPS 17".

The XPS was bigger and heavier than its siblings, and they mocked it mercilessly.

"Are you even an Ultrabook?" One joked.

"I'm surprised if you'd even fit in an overhead compartment." Teased another.

The XPS was so upset by its siblings' cruel behavior that it fled from its family, into the woods. There it grew up and matured on its own. One day, it returned to its natal pond, and all its siblings stared wide-eyed, unable to recognize it. Unsure what they were so alarmed at, the XPS looked at itself in the reflection of the pond.

It gasped at the sight. No longer was it an ugly Delling, but a powerful full-sized media laptop. Its 6GB of ram, Intel i5 processor, and 1GB dedicated graphics card shone in the summer sun, overshadowing the measly features of its siblings.

It trumpeted aloud with its mighty JBL 2.1 speakers and built-in subwoofer as all the forest computers and peripherals cheered the XPS. "Huzzay! Huzzah for the 17" Dell!" They shouted.

AND THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS: Never judge a laptop by its clunky exterior.
