Screen Measurement Instructions

screen measurement
Screen sizes are normally measured in inches from one corner to the corner diagonally across from it. This diagonal measuring system actually came about because the early television manufacturers wanted to make the screen size of their TVs sound more impressive.

Measuring your screen is quite easy:

  • Step 1
    Find the two points you will use for measuring your laptop LCD screen. The first point will be one of the screen corners -- this is the corner of the screen, not the frame of the notebook. The second point will be the opposite corner from the first (for example, measure from the top left corner of the laptop LCD screen to the bottom right corner).
  • Step 2
    Place hold the end of your measuring tape down at the first corner of the screen, and extend the measuring tape until you reach the second corner.
  • Step 3
    Read the hash mark on the tape measure at the point where the tape measure reaches the second corner. The number you see will be the size of your LCD laptop screen.

NOTE: most tape measures measure in 16ths of inches, but screen-sizes are measured in 10ths of inches. Here's a helpful list of common screen sizes and approximate measurements:
