    Can anyone tell me what the actual height and width in inches or mm of the MacBook Pro 13.3" Widescreen?

    Thanks in advance.

    The screen itself would be about 11.3 inches wide and 7.05 inches high.

    Thanks Cowboy!

    Some rumor website prior to the release had the data at the below. I guess it is totally wrong?

    WXGA, 16:9, 13.3" diagonal measure (as rumored):
    11.59" width x 6.52" height = 75.61 sq. in.

    I believe (and it looks like WildCowboy thinks so too) the MacBook's display isn't 16:9, but 16:10 (8:5), which is a little bit taller than widescreen. I worked it out using trig, and the dimensions are around 11.3*7.05, making a TSA of nearly 80 sq. in.
