If you just want a laptop, this isn't for you. Think of it as a portable workstation with FPGA and other features for rapid hardware prototyping and hacking.

Personally I think it would be more usable with the traditional clamshell design. Right off the bat, you're going to need another layer of protection for the screen and somewhere to store a keyboard before you can consider lugging this thing around.

If you took your balance out of MtGOX, sure. But how many people had a cash or bitcoin balance held by them that didn't actually exist? A balance they now cannot recover? MtGOX is certainly negligent, but if they suspected that the cash didn't exist and ignored it while continuing to pay out, that's fraud and practically a Ponzi scheme.

Classifying something as a Ponzi scheme, usually involves outright fraud. ie someone is claiming that there is a huge pile of cash somewhere that doesn't actually exist.

There may be individuals committing fraud using bitcoin. And bitcoin may be a speculative asset bubble with very similar outcomes to a Ponzi scheme. But it isn't *technically* a Ponzi scheme.
