If the buyer does something like a chargeback request with their bank/card merchant, then yes PayPal will hold funds from your account temporarily whilst the case is investigated. If you have already taken the money from PayPal, your account will go negative. This happened to me a few months ago, but the balance was restored when the dispute was resolved.
In any case, if you are receiving payment through PayPal, I recommend you look through sections 11.4-11.7 of the PayPal User Agreement, as it outlines how you need to send the notebook to ensure you are covered by PayPal in case anything happens. I also recommend that once you send it, you keep all proof of sending/purchase for at least SIX months. Better safe than sorry!

for big money, I always ensure the funds are sent as a service, and not as goods or product.
A popular scam is to for the buyer to pay, recieve, then state product never arrived having Paypal give them their money back.
It's a shame. I've had to use it legitimately for stuff on ebay. Like all things, trash will find a way to exploit anything.
