Yes, I know what you’re thinking. But look: The memory came in a container the size and shape of what one expects to contain a regular DIMM module. The label sticker covered most of the container. I didn’t know what I’d gotten stuck with until I opened the container, then looked at the label.
So, yes, I know: I should’ve checked the label. But on the other hand… I shouldn’t have needed to. Who the hell spends ten minutes discussing a desktop PC build, helps the customer settle on a motherboard & CPU combination, and then slaps a stick of laptop memory onto the invoice? And since this is Fry’s, you don’t actually get to see the product until it’s being rung up. Grrr.
