Where do I find detailed technical drawings for Apple Mac computers?

I am specifically looking for details on the locations and sizes the following components on the MacBook and MacBook Pro for example:-

  • USB Ports
  • PowerPorts
  • Firewire
  • Keyboard
  • etc

I am willing to pay for it if I can find an archive of them, however free would be preferred.

I've never seen technical drawing but they do provide outside dimensions in their techspec page. According to the MacBook Technical Specifications Page it is 1.08 inches (2.74 cm) high, 13.00 inches (33.03 cm) wide and a depth of 9.12 inches (23.17 cm).

Here are the links for the other MacBook Pro as

  • MacBook Pro 13" (0.95 inch (2.41 cm) x 12.78 inches (32.5 cm) x 8.94 inches (22.7 cm))
  • MacBook Pro 15" (0.95 inch (2.41 cm) x 14.35 inches (36.4 cm) x 9.82 inches (24.9 cm))
  • MacBook Pro 17" (0.98 inch (2.50 cm) x 15.47 inches (39.3 cm) x 10.51 inches (26.7 cm))

If you're just looking for the dimensions of the case, you should find this by nearly every resaler.

'Advanced' and more detailed technical drawings are most likely in a safe at the Apple HQ.

This isn't a technical drawing, but there are a lot of pictures of disassembled MacBook Pros (with instructions on removing various components) at iFixit. Mayhap these will fill your need?
