Hey guys,

I'm trying to design a macbook skin for myself using photoshop/illustrator but i am not sure what the measurements are for my 13 inch MBP.... I'm also trying to position the apple logo at the centre as part of the design but i am not sure what the measurements are for it so i hope some designer out there can advise me on this...~

I don't want to sound silly - but couldn't you use a ruler? That's probably the only way to get it to sub-millimetre accuracy.

Wow.

Sorry for not writing it properly... I Mean the measurements for creating the skin in photoshop. especially the apple logo positioning..i hope this clarifies some misconception.

As tpg said, why don't you use a ruler and measure it yourself?

I've got only a PC so I can't measure you a Macbook Pro.

Here's a template from a custom skin provider:

hope this helps

Oh, and for the smartasses. Obviously you've never designed something like this or you would know it's hard to measure something like this on your own unless you know the specs of the company making the skin. Do you measure it including the curved part or only the flat part? Makes a big difference if you want the apple in exactly the right place. Next time, if you don't know the answer, how about keeping your smartass remarks to yourself?
