Solve does give a list; however, it is a list of replacement rules rather
than a list of values.
Solve[x^2 == 4, x]
{{x -> -2}, {x -> 2}}
To convert to a list of values
data = x /. Solve[x^2 == 4, x]
{-2, 2}
data^3
{-8, 8}
To restrict the results, use Select or Cases
data = Select[x /. Solve[x^2 == 4, x], #>= 0&]
{2}
data = Cases[x /. Solve[x^2 == 4, x], _?NonNegative]
{2}
