Length/width, you're entirely correct, and that holds true for
significantly larger pieces than we've got here.  The laptop needn't worry.

Thickness is where we lose all plywood moisture stability with the
stacked option.  8 layers, 3mm thick = ~24mm thick, or a little less than
1".  As I posted earlier, between someone living in a desert, and someone
living in a wet tropical area, the latter may have a case almost 1/16" or
1.5mm thicker than the desert person.
