I am comparing to an older Windows model. If somebody has a 13 MBA around, and a ruler, I'd love to know how wide and how high the 13-inch screen is. (Every internet measurement is on the diagonal, so I'm asking a favor here.)

Thanks!

Haha. But really OP?

13" MBA is 16x10. The screen is 13.3 on the diagonal, do just use the Pythagorean Theorem to calculate the multiplier of the length and width, then multiply 16 and 10 by the amount respetively to get inches.

I went to Best Buy and measured the screen sizes

The actual dimensions of each screen:

11-inch Air:
10 inches wide and 5.75 inches high (not even six inches!)

13-inch Air (same as 13-inch MBP and retina):
11.25 inches wide and 7 inches high

Interesting that the 13-inch is only 1.25 inches higher than the 11-inch. Seems like it would be more than that.

It's on their website:

Size and Weight
Height: 0.3-1.7 cm (0.11-0.68 inch)
Width: 32.5 cm (12.8 inches)
Depth: 22.7 cm (8.94 inches)
Weight: 1.35 kg (2.96 pounds)

Of course that includes the (ample) bezel as well as the body, but it should give you an idea.
