Well here ya go Fred:
~Open height roughly 8.25
~Width about 10.20
~Maxed profile hieght when closed about 2 in even
I hope the visuals help you get a feel for it, Also keep in mind I went with the 6-cell battery so my measurments will differ from the base model by approx. 1 inch in height and profile height when closed.
Pros for 6-cell:
-Longer battery life which I knew it would provide, on lowest output gets about 7 hours
-Actually tilts the laptop up so its easier on the wrist which I did know it did.
Cons for 6-cell:
-Shapes a lil awkward if you care, which I dont
-About .4~.5 pounds heavier which also is a minor inconvience lol
