Lenovo U300s UltrabookThink you have to pay a hefty premium to get a thin and powerful laptop with good battery life? Not if you’re getting an Ultrabook™.

Ultrabooks are a new class of ultraportable laptops that measure less than 21mm thick, get five or more hours of battery life, use a powerful Intel® Core i3™, i5 or i7 processor and wake almost instantly from a sleep state. All for around $1,000.

Ultrabooks are the perfect laptop for people on the go, easily slipping into a bag or briefcase and barely noticeable from a weight perspective - you’ll find yourself bringing your laptop more places than ever before. With their ultra-slim profile, they’re also a dramatic style statement.

The 13" Lenovo® IdeaPad® U300s is a perfect example of everything an Ultrabook has to offer:

  • 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor
  • 128 GB solid state drive (much faster than a hard drive)
  • Just 0.59" thick and 2.91 pounds
  • 8 hours of battery life.

We're giving away a Lenovo U300s ($1049 MSRP) to one lucky Techlicious subscriber, courtesy of Intel! Enter through February 24th, 2012 for a chance to win.

From Edie on January 31, 2012 :: 1:54 pm

I have an old Lenovo.  I use it for work which frequently requires me to travle. It is so heavy lugging it all around.  I would love a new one and one that’s not so heavy.


A wonderful opportunity!

From JCrume on February 15, 2012 :: 12:06 pm

Having a laptop to be portable would be a very wonderful thing - for school, for a very active and busy life, for getting more accomplished no matter where I am.  What a wonderful opportunity. Congrats to whoever the lucky winner is!


Kids are growing up

From heta s on January 24, 2012 :: 11:07 am

My daughter is in 4th grade now and asking for her “own” computer. I am not so sure about “own” but I agree that she needs a computer available to her all the time. So this will be for her and she will be delighted.

So Slow and Old

From KATHY on January 24, 2012 :: 11:09 am

I need a new computer to replace my oh so old and oh so slow computer dinosaur.


I need an Intel powered

From Michael Beeton on January 24, 2012 :: 11:09 am

I need an Intel powered notebook for use upstairs. I have my desktop in my office, and I have an Android tablet, but I do not do anything financial on my tablet. There are some things I just won’t do. A laptop would solve that issue. And nothing but Intel for me, sorry AMD.

From Kam Salisbury on January 24, 2012 :: 11:09 am

A new laptop would be so much faster than my Kindle 3rd generation for browsing the web and doing so many things a Kindle simple cannot do.



From Hideki Yamada on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

Will be light to carry and easy on the energy consumption. That is what I need!


ultra book-ultra nice

From dwight hampton on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

I don’t feel that I deserve a laptop like this but, since you’re offering to give it to me if chosen,I feel qualified to put my name in the ring for it. Certainly will put it to great use for my family and part time business.  Thanks for the opportunity. Best wishes


Aspiring Web Designer/Programmer

From CA on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

My Dell Inspiron is about 6 years old now, runs extremely slow, and is very ill-equipped for web design work. Currently working full time as a computer programmer outside of the house and doing web design work on the side - trying to save up to get out of the crummy, old trailer my daughter and I are living in at the moment.


Special Granddaughter

From Kathy S on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

My oldest granddaughter is extremely intelligent and does a lot of work on the computer.  There are four other people in their house so she can’t use the computer as often as she needs to.  This would really be wonderful for her.


Needed For my son

From Steve Cohen on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

My son Jason needs a computer, and this laptop would be perfect for him. Being disabled, I cannot afford to buy him one.

I hope I am the winner so I can surprise him!

No Batteries!

From Matt Vetter on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

My old Toshiba can’t even be unplugged anymore - and it is so slow!



From Natalie G on January 24, 2012 :: 11:10 am

This computer would help with my small business and not take our old laptop away from home when the kids need it for homework…


Please pick me!!

From Rebecca on January 24, 2012 :: 11:11 am

I really need a new laptop that easy to carry with me everywhere - my netbook just crashed about a month ago, and my Nook just isn’t cutting it.


For my wife, the school teacher

From Michael Gregorash on January 24, 2012 :: 11:11 am

My wife has an older laptop, which she uses a lot for her school work.  She’s a teacher, and she devotes a lot of her extra time to coming up with lesson plans and unique ideas to help her students connect with the material and make learning fun and effective.

If I were able to provide her with this new laptop, she would be able to get much more done in less time and without the frustrations that she currently deals with while working on her old laptop.  Thanks (*keeping fingers crossed*)!


I need this

From Debra Barber on January 24, 2012 :: 11:11 am

Because my other computer died and I need a new one!!


I NEED and Ultrabook!!

From Janis Gleason on January 24, 2012 :: 11:11 am

Whoa - my laptop in YEARS old and is a heavy dinosaur!  What it lacks in beauty is only eclipsed by what it lacks in speed and power.  Do I dare wish for a new computer?


A new Lenovo? Yes, please

From Rob Peterson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:12 am

As someone who once used (and loved) a Lenovo and am now stuck with an old and slow HP, a new Lenovo would help me immensely with my work as an Internet contractor.


I need one because my

From Lisa Carr on January 24, 2012 :: 11:12 am

I need one because my sons are using an over-worked mini at the moment and I’m tired of them sneaking onto mine every 5 minutes.


HP doesn't cut it anymore

From Christina on January 24, 2012 :: 11:12 am

As a working mother I rely on my laptop to order diapers and wipes, pay bills and keep in touch with family. My HP laptop is slooooooow and takes too long to do anything. A new laptop would help me to get things done more efficiently - and spend more time actually playing with my daughter.


I need a new Intel-powered

From Constance Lavery on January 24, 2012 :: 11:13 am

I need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook because I will soon be getting my Associates Degree for logistics and I will need it to land myself a great new job.


More people in the family need computer time

From Sarah on January 24, 2012 :: 11:13 am

As my daughters get older and are using the computer for school work and studying we are facing traffic jams for online time. An extra computer would help ALOT!


WOW New!!!!

From darlene on January 24, 2012 :: 11:13 am

The current state of my laptop - well let’s just say it has hit the floor too many times!  The cap lock light doesn’t work, I have worn the ink off the keys “e”, “a” and “s”...

From Tammy Darling on January 24, 2012 :: 11:13 am

We homeschool and this would be great for the kids to do some of their work on!


Tammy Darling - Home School

From Sandra J Brown on February 03, 2012 :: 9:03 pm

Make sure you teach the kids to not end sentences with a preposition.  wink


Light Weight

From Grace on January 24, 2012 :: 11:13 am

I would love to win this Lenovo Ultrabook because it is so much lighter than my present laptop.



From Sean on January 24, 2012 :: 11:13 am

My laptop only boots up successfully 50% of the time (literally).  The other 50% it presents me with a fatal error and will not boot.  The laptop gets extremely hot - I have to cool it with ice packs - no joke!


I'm subscribed. I could use

From Susan Chester on February 18, 2012 :: 2:48 pm

I’m subscribed. I could use a new Lenovo laptop because I was an idiot and bought the cheapest laptop I could find and it proves that you really do get what you pay for.
