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.

New Lenovo

From Rick O'Keefe on January 24, 2012 :: 4:17 pm

My old and falling apart laptop is obsolete and weighs a ton. I need new technology, and not a workout. Besides, Lenovo has excellent ratings.

From Ashlie Meadows on January 24, 2012 :: 4:21 pm

From Cornelia on January 24, 2012 :: 4:22 pm

I really need a new laptop but I blew my budget buying my secretary a new laptop; a Lenovo.  I am hoping that what goes around comes around!  Right after I bought her the laptop (and a digital camera) the “h” key on my Gateway broke.  I desparately need a new laptop!


A New Lenovo!

I'm currently writing my first

From Amber on January 24, 2012 :: 4:24 pm

I’m currently writing my first novel, and starting an online course through a college, so I definitely would use, would love, and would be thrilled, to own a new Intel powered Lenovo laptop! Especially since I’m sharing my current laptop with my roommate. Would be fantastic to have a brand new one all to myself! Thanks Techlicious! (I am already an email subscriber)


I need this Lenovo Ultrabook!

From Joanne Schultz on January 24, 2012 :: 4:24 pm

well, my desktop computer is dead, and with the noise my laptop makes when I start it, it sounds like it might be dead soon too.
I spend everyday at the library(I’m unemployed, but looking for work), and sure could use a reliable laptop.
Thanks for the giveaway!


Microsoft dumped my Vista OS!

From Marcia Carter on January 24, 2012 :: 4:28 pm

Microsoft kicked my Vista OS to the curb! I need a new lightweight laptop! I am struggling just to keep my 2007 Toshiba Satellite operating since Vista is no longer supported by Microsoft.
I subscribe to the e-newsletter.
I really need a lightweight ultrabook as I have diabetic peripheral neuropathy. I try to supplement my family’s income with surveys, etc. It is difficult to handle my laptop with my disabilities. I got turned down by social security. Our family of 3 lives off of my hubby’s disability. Financially, a new laptop is an unrealistic dream. Pick me, pick me, PLEASE!!



From naomi shin on January 24, 2012 :: 4:30 pm

lenovo ultrabook: if you recommend it great and if it is free even better.
i look at your reviews of other tech products and appreciate the tech info.
i try to get the best bang for my buck.



From Carol on January 24, 2012 :: 4:31 pm

Our old computer recently died, we are raising our 7 & 9 yr old granddaughters and the new technology would help us!

From Cathy on January 24, 2012 :: 4:32 pm

Why I could use a new ultra book

From James Vollbrecht on January 24, 2012 :: 4:42 pm


I am writing because I am desperate for a new laptop. I Am between jobs, going through a divorce from my wife with whom I have been for 18 years (I am 36), and I have almost no hope of winning a fair custody arrangement for my daughter bc I moved to take a job in Seattle from Dallas. I am hunting for a new job but need to stay in Seattle for a few more months until I can get out of my lease. As a result I have to travel to Texas all the time to see my daughter and to interview.

My current laptop is am x301… It is missing 4 keys, has been ritualistically abused by my daughter, and just barely runs- despite multiple parts replacemends I did on my own.

I would love something light that works, and it would definitely be a welcome change in fortune for me to win.



I Need an Intel-powered Ultrabook!!

From Ken Blair on January 24, 2012 :: 4:43 pm

I’m taking a health information technology online certification course and it has chained me to my PC.  An Ultrabook would break the chains that bind me and set me free!!  Free at last! Free at last!  Thank Lenovo, I’m free at last!



From Teresa on January 24, 2012 :: 4:44 pm

I have arthritis in my wrists, and a lightweight laptop would be much more manageable for me.

From kwyn on January 24, 2012 :: 4:46 pm

My kids think I'm old fashioned

From Sue on January 24, 2012 :: 4:48 pm

My kids think I’m old fashioned having to sit at a desk top computer.  They all have laptops and I would love to join them.


For our daughter

From June on January 24, 2012 :: 4:53 pm

Our daughter needs a computer and has been putting aside money ever since her old one quit. She needs one to keep looking for better employment.  Using the library computer is limiting her search!  We’re able to help a little, but a free one would be such a gift!


From michael cuchinelli on January 24, 2012 :: 4:58 pm

I need the lenovo so that I can continue to do the work that I do trying to make any money that I can since I can no longer do the work I once did. I need a new reliable computer that fits the bill of the lenovo that you are giving away, something that would be small enough to take with me to VA appointments but still big enough see the screen without any trouble.


Many MANY reasons

From Mary on January 24, 2012 :: 4:58 pm

a. I do web design and am on the pc all the time
b. mine are at least 6 years old!
c. I need something electronic to pamper wink


Lenovo Ultrabook Giveway from Intel

From Jennifer on January 24, 2012 :: 5:00 pm

I am a 42 yr. old mom of 2 and recently went back to college and cannot afford to buy my own computer, so I am always borrowing my husband’s or one of my kid’s computers..which they are not always willing to give up.  I had no idea how necessary they are..


The need to be mobile

From Michelle Stice on January 24, 2012 :: 5:03 pm

My laptop is getting old and it has issues (like it stopped reading Discs/CD/DVD’s.  I have been looking at laptops, but as a stay at home mom of a 1 and 3 year old it is out of our budget to buy a quality laptop at this time.  I would rather wait than buy a cheaper laptop that will not work well or last as long.  Winning the Lenovo could be the answer to my problem.

Helping Humans Being More

From Linda B. Nerstad on January 24, 2012 :: 5:13 pm

My business and life’s goal is to empower people to be the best they can be. A thin laptop would enable me to “have info, will travel”. Help me help others.



From emp on January 24, 2012 :: 5:13 pm

I need a new Lenovo, because I never owned a laptop. Desktop only, it’s time for a change.

From Marilyn on January 24, 2012 :: 5:16 pm

I have 9 children, 5 still at home and 9 grandkids. Every time I get a computer station set up, it seems to get over taken.  This one could just be mine!


Everything going bad

From ShellyBGood on January 24, 2012 :: 5:19 pm

Would love the Lenovo

From Janet on January 24, 2012 :: 5:20 pm

My HP laptop is heavy and 6 years old.  I’ve heard good things about Lenovo and would love a lighter, thinner laptop, especially to take on vacations.  With the economy and all, it’s hard to spring for a new laptop when other things are more necessary.

College Student

From Candace Mapp on January 24, 2012 :: 5:24 pm

I am current a student attending Tidewater Community College, and my major is Computer Science. I work full-time and pay my tuition out of pocket in order to prevent myself from getting into a mountainof debt from school loans. I am constantly looking for a laptop that is light and portable so that it will be easy to carry around. This way I could work more efficently on my C++ Programs for my classes whenever and wherever I want to.
