The question is in the title. According to everymac.com the dimensions of the cases are the same.
Yes, they are.
They are *not*... the 15" PowerBook displays were 15:10, or 3:2. The resolution was either 1152x768, 1280x854, or 1440x960.
They're either 16:10 or something around that.
I believe the only true 16:9 laptop Apple ever released was the 11" MacBook Air which has a resolution of 1366x768.
WMD's right. NO 15-inch PowerBook has ever had 16:10 display. Only 17-inch G4s had 16:10.
12" + 14" G4 -> 4:3 (1024x768)
15" G4 -> 3:2 / 15:10 (1152x768 / 1280x854 / 1440x960)
17" G4 -> 16:10 / 8:5 (1440x900 / 1680x1050)
Thanks for the answers and (to Colpeas) for the details.
Background, of my question: I was wondering, if they had perhaps also had changed dimensions along with the last PowerBooks that had High Resolution Displays. But, ok, they did not.
I'd prefer all of these over 16:9 anyway.
I read that my 2012 MBA is 16:10? The resolution is 1440x900 and I've had other macs with the same Resolutions (2006/7 MBP, iMac G5 17"). I would have never thought of the iMac or the MBA being 16:10
Yep, the MBA is 16:10. iMacs past 2009 are 16:9.
Also all 27" Cinemas / Thunderbolt displays and the 11" MacBook Air are 16:9.
I personally prefer 16:10 over wider displays. Just because I can fit more on the screen. I even stick with the old aluminum ACD because of that However, I might upgrade to dual 24" LED Cinemas in the future, as it is the last ACD to have 16:10 and - of course - has LED backlighting instead of CCFL.
By the way, do you know about some quality antiglare film for the 24" ACD? I'm so sick of glossy displays....
