While looking for a cooling pad for an Acer I bought on Ebay, I happened to need to know the exact size of the Acer, so I looked up the specs. And discovered that I had forgotten to do so before buying the fucking thing. Because the fucking thing, at 6 pounds, weighs more than my current laptop does, and is almost as big. Which surprised me as well as pissing me off, because I was unaware that Acer made normal sized laptops. I have literally never seen an Acer that big before, I thought they only made the tiny ones. So now I need to return this damn thing once I get it, and explain to the poor guy I got it from that I fucked up by making an assumption.
Prior to that, I had bid on three separate Acers in turn and lost all three, and so I started looking for Acers with "buy it now" so I wouldn't have to wait on bids. I guess in my frustration, I forgot to look up the specs, as I had done with all the others. If I had done so, I would not have bought it to begin with.
What's even more infuriating is I can't seem to find any Acers of the kind I actually want (small, light), that are A. In my price range, and B. Fully functional.
