Further, it is also well established that where the difference between the prior art and the claims are a recitation of relative dimension of the claimed device, and a device having the claimed relative dimensions would not perform differently than the prior art device, the claimed device is not patentably distinct from the prior art device. See, e.g., Gardner v. TEC Sys., Inc., 725 F.2d 1338, 1346 (Fed. Cir. 1984); see also In re Dailey, 357 F.2d 669, 676 (CCPA 1966) (configuration of a claimed disposable plastic nursing container was a matter of choice which a person of ordinary skill in the art would have found obvious absent pervasive evidence that the particular configuration of the claimed container was significant).
