Apple is trying to patent the outward appearance of its wedge shaped MacBook Air, according to Patently Apple.

Apple's invention describes various embodiments regarding systems and methods for providing a lightweight and durable portable computing device having a wedge shaped profile and an associated high speed memory card and card connector. This could be accomplished at least in part through the use of a wedge shaped outer housing and specially designed inner components arranged to fit and operate within this housing. Such components include a high speed memory card and associated card connector that utilizes contacts having short signal paths, as well as a ground plane split into multiple portions. In one aspect of the provided embodiments, the computing device takes the form of a laptop computer.

Patently Apple notes that this is a continuation patent and that Apple is beefing up the patent pending MacBook Air by putting nine other patent applications under this one invention.
