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.

Need a Lenovo!

From J Weeks on January 24, 2012 :: 3:15 pm

My laptop is so old. (Compaq [sigh])  Its already crashed once and I had to reload only what I absolutely had to have.  I would love to have a Lenovo because they’re the best computers ever.  I’ve researched all the brands and none compare to the Lenovo.  You guys are awesome~


My notebook still uses Windows

From john rasmussen on January 24, 2012 :: 3:16 pm

My notebook still uses Windows ME, so I can’t even get software help anymore.

i need a new lenovo laptop for my dad, his is showing a lot of age



From Jim May on January 24, 2012 :: 3:17 pm

My Acer Aspire is too small and too slow for a “portable” laptop! Being retired and on disability makes it hard to afford new technology!



From ERNEST THOMAS on January 24, 2012 :: 3:19 pm

I’ve never had a laptop, love to have this one.



From Kellie Kluger on January 24, 2012 :: 3:20 pm

My current laptop is so slow.  I tried upgrading with a cheaper laptop and its just not cutting it.  I do a lot of sweeps, internet searches, twitter, facebook with many many tabs. It just locks up all the time.  As a matter of fact it took me 5 minutes just to write this short paragraph!  Would love to win, thanks!


Help me I'm desperaldo!!!!

From Desperaldo on January 24, 2012 :: 3:22 pm

I would REALLY like to have a laptop.  My friends keep saying they are hearing good things about the Lenov’s and I would like to get one and then tell THEM just how cool it is!!!!  Please help me be ‘up one’ on my friends for once.

What a wonderful thing for the business.  Can travel with me everywhere.

From josh on January 24, 2012 :: 3:27 pm

This is the perfect thing for my wife.  She has been asking for one for a while.  She nnnnnneeeeeeeeddddss one badly.


Always finding a use

From Brenda on January 24, 2012 :: 3:28 pm

I work on my computer everyday and do some traveling. The “Leno” would find itself in constant service if placed in my hands, but I see so many others that are more deserving. I just pray that whomever needs this most will get it. Thanks for the offering and opportunity.


To save my back!

From Mary on January 24, 2012 :: 3:33 pm

I travel frequently and my lap top is so old, big and heavy that a new Lenovo would save my back!


I could really use a

From Brenda on January 24, 2012 :: 3:33 pm

I could really use a new laptop. I bought one a lap top a little over a year ago and should have gone for more memory etc.  At the time I thought it was going to be enough.


I need a new one

From Susan S on January 24, 2012 :: 3:34 pm

I need a new one to replace my ooooooold one!


Never had one

From Sue on January 24, 2012 :: 3:36 pm

I am a homemaker. No one in my family think I ever needed one. Now I travel and have to beg/borrow others just to keep up with my online accounts and with identity safeguards becomes a problem accessing accounts from different computers. Can’t afford to buy one myself.


I would love to win the laptop

From Renee Mace on January 24, 2012 :: 3:36 pm

I really need this laptop because of my situation. I have been in bed since 2010 due to a car accident which gave me CPS.What that means is that I live in constant PAIN in both legs, sitting or walking makes it worse, so I have to stay in bed all day. Having a laptop will let me be involved with the living, the internet, friends, news, chat lines and people who have the same problem as me. You know the old saying “Misery loves Company!” So I really hope I win this.


I would Love to win

From Dawn Reid on January 24, 2012 :: 3:36 pm

I would Love to win the Lenovo Ultrabook! This looks great and would be such an upgrade from the one I am using now. Thanks!


I want to play all

From Max on January 24, 2012 :: 3:37 pm

I want to play all the new games which require a very powerful laptop. Thanks.


Lenovo computer giveaway

From Randy Clendenin on January 24, 2012 :: 3:38 pm

I honestly need to win because I’m totally disabled w/o anyone to help in any way - I wouldn’t ever be able to afford to buy one since I don’t have the “luxury” of being able to work, let alone get any additional “work” to support my greed!  All I have is a smartphone-I’m without any access to a regular computer.  A computer is the only way that I could even possibly improve my life!  Thank you for this opportunity of hope-sincerely, Randy.


Lenovo Rules

From Max on January 24, 2012 :: 3:39 pm

I want to play all the latest games which require this exact super powerful laptop. Thanks.


My Old Thinkpad

From Walter on January 24, 2012 :: 3:39 pm

My 6 years old Thinkpad is so old it has an IBM (not Lenovo) logo and I have to run a non supported version (jaunty)of Ubuntu Linux to get ANY use from it at all.


I need a new Intel-powered

From Joyce K on January 24, 2012 :: 3:40 pm

I need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook because the laptop I have right now is old and slow. The Ultrabook is fast,sleek,and lightweight next to my laptop. Fingers crossed! smile Thanks for running this contest.



From Mike Hurley on January 24, 2012 :: 3:40 pm

Because I took the time to notice that Lenovo backwards is OVONEL.



From Lisa Marz on January 24, 2012 :: 3:42 pm

Oh the reasons…. I have never had a laptop before… the possibilities abound.  I also have a teenage son who will be heading off to college in another who is currently w/o a computer…. And a 6 year old who desperately wants one… And, I would love to be able to have my desktop to myself instead of sharing with them.  wink


Need an update

From Shelley Erhart on January 24, 2012 :: 3:42 pm

I would like a laptop to be more updated in the computer world. I like to browse on facebook and interesting internet sites. I love news. I would like to be able to keep up with current events as much as possible.


Using wife's OLD computer

From James on January 24, 2012 :: 3:44 pm

I am using my wife’s OLD Gateway (still has XP on it)since she got a new one last year. This Gateway is so slow it’s very frustrating!


Lenovo giveaway

From Vickie on January 24, 2012 :: 3:46 pm

To own a laptop….that would be wonderful.  This would be a great win, I have wanted a laptop for quite a while just haven’t been able to budget for one yet, this would really make my year.



From Maria Camacho on January 24, 2012 :: 3:49 pm

I don’t have a laptop and would love to add one to my collection of electronics.


New Student

From BethR on January 24, 2012 :: 3:49 pm

I am a new PhD student buried under all these writing projects!  I would love to have a laptop to take to school to help me keep up.



From Terry on January 24, 2012 :: 3:51 pm

I want to take a computer with me whereever I go!


Why I need a computer

From John J. Ruane, Jr. on January 24, 2012 :: 3:53 pm

I have been unemployed for 2 1/2 years. If I had this I would be able to broaden my possibilities for work. We only have the one computer, a desktop, at home and it is really used a lot and is very slow. It would be such a blessing to win this compuiter.



From Carrie on January 24, 2012 :: 3:55 pm

I would love to not share my computer and to get to my email and info when I need it without making someone cry when they get kicked off of webkinz! wink


Desperately Seeking an Upgrade!

From T on January 24, 2012 :: 3:58 pm

The reason I want to win Lenovo Ultrabook?
I’m still using a desktop that is now 10 years old ( slow ) and XP Windows. Support expires in 2014. Forget about Windows 7 I couldn’t even upgrade to Vista being on XP :( I’m disabled and my only connection to the outside other than my closest family members is online. Once my PC goes that’s it! I don’t even have the cents much less dollars to buy a new one so to win is my only hope. Also it would be nice to have the option to be able to use a computer in a more comfortable way than only at my desk. It would be nice for once to be up to speed with technology than in the dark ages as I feel I am now. smile


I need a new Lenovo

From Kathy Luman on January 24, 2012 :: 3:59 pm

I need a new Lenovo because I have one that is about 3years old. I love it but my son needs one and I would give the one I already have to him and keep the new one for myself.


Somewhere Over the Rainbow

From B.L. Miles on January 24, 2012 :: 4:02 pm

I hear my niece and nephew cry,
And I watch them grow,
They’ll learn much more than we’ll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Where the dream that they dare to,
not to say o’er
Why oh why can’t I?

(slight liberty taken for the teenager orphans)


Would make a great gift ...

From Debbi McNeer on January 24, 2012 :: 4:02 pm

for my grandson, who is the only computer-less person in his nuclear family, poor guy.



From Elaine on January 24, 2012 :: 4:07 pm

I’d love to win a laptop for myself…I’ve never owned one before!


From Bozena on January 24, 2012 :: 4:08 pm

I share my PC with my kids. I would love to have one just for myself.


Need extra computer...

From Susan G on January 24, 2012 :: 4:08 pm

I need a new laptop to continue with my RN nursing studies.


From Bob on January 24, 2012 :: 4:09 pm

My old laptop is about ready to bite the dust so this new Lenovo would be fantastic. I love Solid state computers because if you drop it…you don’t have to worry about breaking your fragile hard drive!!


My old laptop is about

From K.C. Evans on January 24, 2012 :: 4:09 pm

My old laptop suddenly freezes up.  You have to take the battery out and then out it back in to shut down and restart. Cooling pads don’t help! I need a new Ultrabook!
