Apple has been granted what appears to be a very broad design patent covering the distinctive look of the MacBook Air.

Design patent D661,296 was issued on Tuesday and it covers not the minutia of the design -- such as hinges, ports, feet and so on -- but the overall wedge and teardrop shape of the portable.
