What size is my mac?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need help determining the size of my imac monitor. When I bought it I believe the only sizes available were 21" and 24". I measured my screen at 22.5" diagonally and roughly 19.75" across. This is only the part of the screen that's actually useable. Anyone know which model those numbers correlate to?

Is there a serial number somewhere that I can use to look up which model it is? The computer is a little over a year old. It was the first imac with the aluminum casing. Thanks in advance.

I thought monitor size was measured diagonally? In that case, you'd have a 30" monitor.

Click on the Apple icon in finder Click on About This Mac When that window pops up, click on the version #. I mean click the actual text. It will change to your Build # and then Serial #. Google either one of those or look them up on the Apple support site to be sure.

Thanks. I did that and found it's a 21.5" model. Strange -- because it doesn't measure 21.5" in any direction.

make sure you're measuring the actual screen and not just the black part. In other words, measure where the pixels are. Maybe you're measuring the bezel? My apologies if my assumptions are false.
