1. The ornamental design for a computing device, as shown and described.


FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a first embodiment of a computing device in an open position, showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a top view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a perspective view of a second embodiment thereof; and,

FIG. 4 is a top view thereof.

The dotted broken line showing of the keys and body is for the purpose of illustrating portions of the computing device and forms no part of the claimed design.

The portions between the pairs of closely adjacent, spaced jagged dash-dot-dot broken lines in the drawings are broken away to indicate no particular length or width, and such pairs of jagged, broken lines themselves form no part of the claimed design. The materials that may be visible between the jagged lines have been removed for clarity.
