Apple suit coming?

I don't know....this looks awfully similar to Apple hardware and if I remember right Apple does have patents on slim style and screens that fold down onto the keyboard bezel making the laptop more portable. I just hope this has been brought to the attention of Apples legal department.
My God I just had a thought! What if Apple finds out the other computer makers are using Apples 2009 (patent# 0101000111) defining how data and instructions function via electrical on/off states?
