The court granted defendant's motion for summary judgment that its portable computer patent was not invalid as indefinite. "[Plaintiff] argues '[c]laim 3 fails for indefiniteness and for lack of enablement and written description,' and that claim 9 fails similarly. [Plaintiff], however, has no apparent difficulty in understanding the term 'recharger' as used in its invalidity argument . . . Chargers/rechargers were as ubiquitous at the time of the [patent-in-suit] application as they are now, and the dictionary defines both as devices for charging storage batteries. Claim 3 is not indefinite merely because the recharger is only shown in a single figure, sans the recharger connector. '[A]n applicant is not required to describe in the specification every conceivable and possible future embodiment of his invention.'"
