I have an adjustable monitor and I'm trying to figure out how high the 21.5 iMac sits.

Not interested in total height. Not interested in width. Not interested in screen size.

I only want to know how high the actual screen is from the bottom of the iMac (the desk it's sitting on). NOT the bezels or the chin... the actual pixels on the screen.

Thanks in advance!

It's 9.5" from the top of my desk to the bottom of the on-screen Dock, but I have it sitting on a monitor riser.

From the top of the riser to the bottom of the on-screen Dock is 6.25".

154.65mm according to a Mitutoyo dial caliper. This instrument is accurate to 0.05mm. However, there might be some measurement errors - the computer isn't sitting on a perfectly flat surface.
