    I have a quick question to which I didn't find the answer to: what's the thickness of the bottom part (the base) of the Retina Macbook (the thickest and thinnest point)? The only information revealed is the thickness of the computer with the screen closed, I'm specifically asking for the base. It's just for personal speculation regarding future models, but I don't own the computer so I can't measure it myself. Thanks.

    I couldn't find them either, So I just took them myself haha.

    Here you are. These are in inches, so it might take a minute to read it.
    Don't forget there are feet on the bottom too, so it's not all chassis.

    *EDIT I realized, that the second picture looked misleading in height. It's the height of the first bar after the 1/4th inch (right where it starts to curve round).

    Thanks a lot for your help! :)

    Here are the results I got (if I did everything right)
    0.25" thinnest point (0.635 cm)
    0.3125" thickest point (0.8 cm (rounded))

    You're most certainly welcome!
    But those seem to be the correct numbers as far as I can tell.
    If someone on here has one of them 3D Z-Height measuring microscopes please chime in with the Nanometer Dimensions.
