    Hi
    Does anyone know (or could measure) the width and height of a 12" macbook screen?

    I can only find the 12 inch diagonal measurement. Or the measurements of height/width that include the casing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Some geometry and math fun. We know the MacBook has a 12" diagonal and a 16:10 display. The diagonal of a rectangle with sides of 16" x 10" is 18.9." Scale that down to a 12" diagonal, and you'd get a display that's roughly 10.2" x 6.4."

    That would just be for the display itself.

    Don't quote me on this, but I think the MacBook is actually 11.88", not 12 exactly. Could someone bring out their ruler? :)
