For both the 11.6" and the 13.3" airs, what are their horizontal (width) and vertical (height) measurements (just as if you cut out a tracing of the screens)?

For me, I want to compare the screens to a friend's netbook and my 15" mbp.

This is not at all what I am asking (see thread title-I am not asking what the diagonal measurements are (11.6" & 13.3" are obvious).

Simply, what are the width and height of the screen (inside the bezel)?

If you would have BOTHERED to click on those links, you would have seen it mentions its physical dimensions right there near the start of the page.

OP mentions the sizes of the screen, not including the bezel, which the Apple site does not specify.

For all you sharp high school kids out there ... can't you simply calculate the dimensions since you know the diagonal, that it is a right angle, and the aspect ratio?

See ... much simpler than looking at the spec sheet!

So....if a2+ b2 = 13"2,

and knowing that a/b = 900/1440,

now you can use your calc on your mbp to find out

The 13" MBA is about 12"x 7.5x. I hope that helps you for whatever you need it for.

For the OP:

11.25" x 7" for the 13" Air
10" x 5.75" for the 11" Air

Math is fun!
Let's do more general math that deals with right triangles
Sooo...

A radio station tower stands vertically perpendicular on to the level ground. A cable comes down from the top of the tower attaching to the ground creating a 30 degree angle. The cable is 100 feet. How tall is the tower in feet?
