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.

I would love to win

From jo on January 24, 2012 :: 2:27 pm

I would love to win the Ultrabook so my husband can stop contantly complaining while using our archaic, slow moving, cumbersome desktop



From mrcapncaveman on January 24, 2012 :: 2:28 pm

Honestly, I don’t even own a laptop. Until recently laptops never had the power or speed to do graphics work. I have been chained to a desktop for years. I would love to get my hands on a machine such as the Lenova IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook, especially with the Core i5 processor. I certainly don’t have $1049 to shell out for such a fine rig. So here it is my one chance to obtain one. Thanks are in order to Intel and of course Techlicious for such a fine giveaway.

My house computer is 5+ years old, with things the way they are going it will be sometime before I can upgrade.

From Aura on January 24, 2012 :: 2:34 pm

We have one desktop for my kids to watch videos, my 3rd grader to play games and do homework, my husband to do work on and me to pay bills on and surf.  I think we need a second computer, especially a laptop that can be put away from the kids to make sure they dont accidentally erase something important.

Because I don’t have a portable pc device.


My pc Sucks! I am

From Tim Hughes on January 24, 2012 :: 2:36 pm

My pc Sucks! I am out of work battling health issues but every day, I put on a smile, take care of all the household stuff, make sure that when my wife gets home from work that she can relax and unwind with our kids and have no worries. In my free time, I surf the net for giveaway’s and contest’s, because our pc is so damn slow, I sometimes will just be sitting there waiting for pages to open. This thing is beyond slow and it frustrates me to no end. I need a new pc just to remain sane.


I'm old and I'm bold

From Jerry Coffman on January 24, 2012 :: 2:38 pm

I’ve worn out my Acer laptop with a Vista OS and am So ready for a REAL computer.  I’m 70+ and don’t have a lot of time to mess around!  Ha!


Back Breaking

From Tania on January 24, 2012 :: 2:39 pm

I wear my “tank” (Think Pad) on my back as I commute to work.  Would love not only an updated system, but also something lighter.



From Thomas Hyndman, Jr. on January 24, 2012 :: 2:41 pm

I need a laptop badly all i have is an old Dell desktop computer. I sure would like to win a Lenovo Ultrabook.


Not so super mom...

From Tara on January 24, 2012 :: 2:42 pm

With all the things I need to carry out the door…diaper bag for twins, toys, jackets, the boys, purse, blah…blah…blah…anything lighter than my ten year old HP would be fantastic!


Pushed off my Computer

From Cindi Beardsley on January 24, 2012 :: 2:43 pm

It seems like there is less and less time allowed for Mom to use the computer. Maybe a nice laptop all to herself is the answer.


subscriberMy laptop died over a

From Stephanie V. on January 24, 2012 :: 2:43 pm

My laptop died over a year ago now.  Was diagnosed with cancer about the same time so along with the emotional roller coaster came financial nightmares.  Never could afford to get another one.  I am self- employed and although I can’t say I’m in remission yet have, indeed, started working part-time again.  Need a laptop for business trips, work etc so will cross my digits fiercely.


So I can be selfish! :-)

From Dee on January 24, 2012 :: 2:44 pm

My two little boys keep using my computer and I get little to no computer time.  It would be great to have one all for myself. grin


I would love a laptop!

From Kathy on January 24, 2012 :: 2:45 pm

I have never owned a laptop and when we travel I’m so envious of the people in the coffee shops checking emails and surfing the web.



From Patricia Cothran on January 24, 2012 :: 2:45 pm

It would be really awesome to win something for my techy kids!!!


Starting over at 64

From Elaine on January 24, 2012 :: 2:46 pm

I am beginning a new career at 64 years old to supplement my income.  The economy has not been kind to me and the Lenova laptop would really help when I am going to appointments.  Anyone need Senior Medicare Supplemental Insurance?


Lenvo is top of the line

From Gale on January 24, 2012 :: 2:49 pm

My home PC is a Lenvo and I love it.  My daughter’s laptop died and she needs a replacement to help with her work.


Win a Lenovo

From Evelyn Wackett on January 24, 2012 :: 2:49 pm

It is time for an upgrade! Please enter me for this one. Thanks



From Viviana Bhatia on January 24, 2012 :: 2:50 pm

My mom was getting ready to start writing a big project that she has been planning on for a while and the hard drive of her poor, old Toshiba laptop stopped working over the summer. And this was her only computer! She could really, really use a new and light laptop computer to work on and a great processor would be very useful for all of the imagery she plans to use! The computer would go to good use!


my laptop is so old

From eudoxia jason on January 24, 2012 :: 2:50 pm

my laptop is so old that it still carries the IBM marking

From amanda strama on January 24, 2012 :: 2:51 pm

My Husband

From Betty on January 24, 2012 :: 2:51 pm

I would give it to my husband. He needs it for business.


Mine's so old it displays in hieroglyphs!

From Barry Smith on January 24, 2012 :: 2:51 pm

Help I need a new system. My current one is old and tired. I need a new system to help me in my search for a new job. One that keeps pace with the 12 century.


I need a new laptop

From Pam Deimund on January 24, 2012 :: 2:51 pm

I need a new laptop because I am a full time student (taking all on-line classes) using an old computer that has serious problems, and I can’t afford to fix it or buy a new one!


I need a Lenovo Ultrabook

From Marilyn Wons on January 24, 2012 :: 2:52 pm

I need a Lenovo Ultrabook since I have never had one and the reviews are so fine!

From styleezta on January 24, 2012 :: 2:53 pm

I was a little laptop crazy and got a huge 17 inch and now i can never take it anywhere because it breaks my back to lug it around!! Lenovo is only 2.90 pounds!!


Why I need a new Lenovo!

From Rachel on January 24, 2012 :: 2:53 pm

I would love a new Lenovo Ultrabook!  Both mine and my husband’s laptop just died in the last few weeks and I’ve had my eye set on an Ultrabook as a replacement!


Good Reviews

From Marilyn Wons on January 24, 2012 :: 2:55 pm

I have never had a Lenovo Ultrabook.  The reviews are so fine, I would like to own one!

From Becky on January 24, 2012 :: 2:56 pm

My Mother’s desktop is very old. it is time for her to have something that is new & fast. would love to be able to give her a new Lenovo ultrabook.



From Melissa on January 24, 2012 :: 2:56 pm

Just last week I got the internet at home!  I am now in the 21st century.  This laptop would seal the deal.  Pick me smile


Just started a NEW business, my old laptop is DEAD!

From Kerri S on January 24, 2012 :: 2:56 pm

And it’s 5 years old, so even if it did work, it would be the same as being dead compared to this awesome one!


For my Family

From Joe on January 24, 2012 :: 2:56 pm

I am a senior citizen and with the medical expense and the coast of everyday living, I can’t afford a new laptop so this new Lenovo Ultrabook Giveaway would be a blessing my household.


Lenovo Ultrabook Giveaway from Intel!

From Leslie Watkins on January 24, 2012 :: 2:57 pm

I am a 50+ freelancer who is always schlepping my heavier than heavy old laptop from meeting to meeting. I would love to make the leap to 21st century tech life with this delicious Lenovo U300s. OMG, just 2.91 pounds with an 8 hour battery life…Woo hoo!

From Jessica on January 24, 2012 :: 3:00 pm

I subscribed!
I’d like a new laptop because my 1 year old thought it would be fun to throw my netbook off the table. The lid won’t shut and some keys are broken. It’s been laid to rest inside it’s bag.


I need a new Intel-powered

From Helen on January 24, 2012 :: 3:01 pm

I need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook because I don’t have a smart phone and feel so disconnected when I travel.


Borrowing an older laptop for my son in first year of college.

From Sandra Brower on January 24, 2012 :: 3:01 pm

My son is great and he managed to get a scholarship to a good college, but I didn’t have any money to help him with the things he really needed. He is borrowing a laptop from a friend right now but he really needs a good laptop for the advanced studies he is taking and to be able to handle the music he writes and records. I wish I could give him the world but I just don’t have much to give except my love and an entry into a contest or contests to try to win the things he needs like school supplies, clothes and an occasional meal at McDonalds, which he loves. But, maybe a good laptop would make it easier for him and I would love to do that for him.


Can I Still Win?

From Rick Eldreth on January 24, 2012 :: 3:02 pm

I already subscribe to Techlicious, and love all the great info you send, but I also would love to win this laptop. My 10 year old tower computer just went down, because of a BAD Motherboard, and is currently being worked on to retrieve ALL my stuff from the hard drive, so I have to borrow my brother’s laptop to get my emails and updates until I can buy a new one or win a new one.

thank you



From Anthony on January 24, 2012 :: 3:03 pm

I really need to win this Lenovo laptop so I can watch some porn, just kidding. I need a new laptop because my sound driver was accidently deleted and I cant hear any of my online classes for school.


Lenovo Ultrabook

From Brad Edwards on January 24, 2012 :: 3:03 pm

I could use a new ultrabook because the laptop I have now is really old, slow and weighs a ton.


Pick me! Pick me!

From Martha Ventura on January 24, 2012 :: 3:03 pm

All good things must come to an end - and so did our lap top :(  Can’t complain though it has served us well and had been used by our two teenagers for about 5 years!  So we are in the market for a new one smile


Travel companion

From Nancy Mairs on January 24, 2012 :: 3:03 pm

I’m a writer who uses a desktop at home, but a lightweight laptop would be great when I “take my show on the road.


For my class

From julie on January 24, 2012 :: 3:07 pm

My class of 20 K students will all look;
at the Intel-powered Ultrabook!

We’ll learn, laugh and play;
so please bless us we kindly say!

However, if our name is not drew;
We still say a huge Thank You!


I want to win

From John Stetson on January 24, 2012 :: 3:10 pm

A perfect way for my wife to keep up with everything while we’re on the road.  And she won’t want to borrow my laptop which is a big plus for me.


Roadtrippin' with Teclicious and Lenovo

From Mary Wright on January 24, 2012 :: 3:11 pm

I am taking a cross country road trip with my sister in a few months. This Lenovo is perfect for staying in touch, posting photos and blogging about our adventures!


What could possibly be better

From Julie Baute on January 24, 2012 :: 3:11 pm

What could possibly be better than the Lenovo Ultrabook for a busy person on the go!

Home Business

From Dom on January 24, 2012 :: 3:13 pm

I need one so I can have a more reliable computer for the business I’m trying to start up.


I need this!!

From Jeanne Lucas on January 24, 2012 :: 3:14 pm

I travel a great deal, and hate using a tablet.  Somehow, my fingers don’t quite fit my Fire, nor an IPad.
