    The ZaReason Limbo is, in three words, an outstanding machine; a simply outstanding machine that can easily handle any work load ranging from that of the average household user who’s just surfing the Web to the constant tinkering and tweaking by the most restless Linux user (to the latter, I plead guilty). Ruggedly built and with a clean design, the desktop fits in nearly any location in the home.

    Using a new Limbo 5880 desktop PC. Have been a long time MS user so still adjusting to the new Ubuntu 14.04 LTS OS. The PC is nice looking. I ordered it with a CD/DVD player, oh and did I mention that it is fast? There is no comparison between the boot times between my MS desktop and my new Limbo 5880, the Limbo takes maybe 30 sec. tops. Needless to say I like it and will be switching from MS to Ubuntu totally in the near future! Bet on it.

    I am thoroughly impressed with this computer. ZaReason chose excellent components. The case is quite nice. The cable management was done well. It is a very well built, sleek looking computer. I am very pleased with my purchase.
