Title: COMPUTING DEVICES WITH FORMED EDGES AND METHODS OF MANUFACTURING THEREOF
Abstract:
A computing device includes a support structure with at least one edge. The computing device includes a cover connected to the support structure. The cover extends to or beyond the at least one edge of the support structure by no more than between 0 and 100 microns over an edge length of at least 100 mm. A fabric cover includes a cover edge and a cover surface. The cover edge and/or the cover surface include an edge feature. A method of manufacturing a computing device is described. The method includes determining an edge of a computing device and based on the edge that was determined, cutting the fabric cover between 0 and 100 microns of the edge of the computing device over an edge length of the computing device of at least 100 mm.
