System 76 Lemur Review

,----[ Quote ]
| In conclusion, I think the Lemur is a 
| beautiful machine, and combined with what I 
| consider a beautiful Operating System, 
| particularly with the new fit and finish of 
| Lucid. When running the Lemur it really feels 
| like great design in hardware and software 
| meeting well. I would happily recommend this 
| machine to others. :-)
