Computers are both limitless and severely restricted. They can do whatever they are programed to do no matter what the task is so long as they have the hardware necessary and instructions on how to do it. On the other hand they are limited because they can only do what they are instructed to do and are currently incapable of teaching themselves, as well as being able to make the moral not simply logical decisions that humans can.
