Is the Zonbu designed as a closed-system? It looks like it is supposed to access specific online services, with very little flash ram storage locally. For you to have any storage, you will have to add a 2.5 HDD. While this system certainly has its advantages, it has several disadvantages, as well. Only you can determine your exact needs, but I feel this may not be the best avenue for you to take if you want a Linux system. I am not saying it can not be done, but there are other options available to you which just might be less of a hassle. This is just my opinion, but I would like to hear the suggestions and comments of others on the Zonbu machine. I am always interested in learning new knowledge.
