Sorry for the confusing title, but I don't know how to word this. Something I can't find on the internet is the size of the MBA13 screen in actual inches. Such as "8x10", for example.

Is there a simple way of figuring this out myself that I am missing?

Thanks.

Probably 11.25" x 7".

Yep, that's what mine measures (to the nearest 1/16"). :)

The MBA 13 actually has a 13.3" diagonal screen and has a 16:10 aspect ratio.

To get the height and width of any 16:10 screen use the following formulas:

height = diag_meas * 0.53

width = diag_meas * 0.848

This translates to the MBA 13.3" model to be 11.28" x 7.05".

The 11" MBA is actually 11.6" diagonal and is the only current Apple laptop to have a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Most HDTVs are 16:9 aspect ratio so use the following formula for their height and width:

height = diag_meas * 0.49

width = diag_meas * 0.872
