Reading a Serious Advertisement as a Well-Written Joke

When "The Laptop for the Media Maven" popped up in my RSS reader this morning, from The Awl no less, I assumed the following was a parody:

A laptop is a laptop is a laptop, you say? Not anymore.

The HP dv6t is a revolutionary new laptop computer that’s going to change the way you consume media. The computer comes decked out with Beats Audio™ & Quad-Speakers, which block out unwanted electrical sounds and spotlight the subtle nuances in your favorite MP3s (just see how great your loudest hair band albums sound now). The dv6t also features a 15.6-inch BrightView LED display and a built-in high-definition Blu-ray player for a phenomenal cinema-quality movie experience.

Turns out it's a serious sponsored post from HP.
