Ordered a new backpack for my laptop. Dimensions online had 1" to spare vs the dimensions of my laptop - perfect.
Seems the dimensions were only for the 'middle' of each side. Since the corners (at least at the 'top' of the backpack) are rounded, the laptop doesn't fit. Grrr, need to search for another backup. Why don't they give the shortest dimension for a given edge? Or give dimension and say it's in the middle or the edge?

One would think an inch to spare would be more than enough to accommodate for rounded corners. I can’t find fault in your bitch.
I went through something similar looking for a bag to fit a rifle. Compared the rifle dimensions and the inside dimensions. I went through 4 bags before I got one that fit.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
People at the store always think they can get a 4x8 sheet of plywood in their SUVs/minivans because of the cargo space but other than the Plymouth minivan, they all have rounded corners on the back hatch. Will anyone listen to me? Nope, I’m just a drooling idiot that’s never seen this before.
I see an ad copy person looking at drawings of uncut fabric panels. No concept of seam allowance eating up space.

I've almost started this thread myself dozens of times. I'm always at a loss that companies list things for sale without, not just accurate, but often ANY dimensions given.
And forget sites like Amazon. They list things like automotive parts with NO info. Just "Walker #63536724". Would it kill you to say 2"ID, 2 1/4" OD, 6" long? You might actually, you know, sell a few.

That could be non-Amazon sellers, though.
