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.

My laptop is so old

From Colleen G on January 24, 2012 :: 7:01 pm

My laptop is so old I can’t even get to the Windows screen anymore. Its stuck on “start normal” & that’s it so its dead, done, kaput!


What would I do with two?

From Sue on January 24, 2012 :: 7:05 pm

Would then give my current Lenovo to one of my grandchildren


thank you for this chance!

From Dorothy Sandman on January 24, 2012 :: 7:05 pm

Winning the Lenovo would be a blessing for one of my sons who is planning to start college soon. 
Thank you for the chance to win!

Need Ultrabook to handle day to day information work

From Jo Seashols on January 24, 2012 :: 7:10 pm

Currently have an old XP unit - doesn’t always work with so much of today’s software.  Need an update and refreshinf.


Tablet Giveaway

From Robin Forbes on January 24, 2012 :: 7:12 pm

Wow, let me count the reasons!
Actually, I could use one due to being on Social Security, and always having to buy (barely) used computers. Also, I am homebound, due to medical problems and surgeries, a major surgery that I’m going for within another month. My computer keeps me connected to everything, and can do my shopping on it. What did we do before them, I’m trying to remember…


It's Time

From Nicole on January 24, 2012 :: 7:14 pm

I have had the same desktop for over 10 years now, and have always said I wanted a laptop. I’ve also made a commitment to get away more often this year, and this would be perfect for travel!


I never have had a

From Sally on January 24, 2012 :: 7:15 pm

I never have had a lap top of any kind, sure would love to have one.

From Cherie on January 24, 2012 :: 7:21 pm

I only have an old desktop pc and feel tethered to my desk.  Would love to have the mobility of a laptop.


Lenovo giveaway

From chana on January 24, 2012 :: 7:22 pm

From Eleanor Cooper on January 24, 2012 :: 7:33 pm

I would love the Lenovo Ultrabook!  My laptop needs a facelift…it’s almost as old as I am!


I need one because I

From Brenda E on January 24, 2012 :: 7:34 pm

I need one because I don’t have one! All I have is a desktop and that makes its hard to go to meetings with a client and not have access to everything I need.


My old Dell laptop takes

From Charles W on January 24, 2012 :: 7:34 pm

My old Dell laptop takes several minutes to come up and sometimes I have to restart it a few times before windows starts.


What a Great Prize!

From Sue on January 24, 2012 :: 7:34 pm

What a great prize some blessed person is going to receive.  A nice, new computer is always exciting.  It’s been a while since I’ve had a new computer and although mine seems to be working fine at the moment, a new modern one would be nice.


This would be for ME

From Bev on January 24, 2012 :: 7:37 pm

This would be for ME as I always have to “fight” with my teenage daughters about using my laptop—of course as the loving mom I am, I would be happy to hand down my old chunky laptop to them to fight over.  Thanks for the chance.


Moving forward

From Carrie Luber on January 24, 2012 :: 7:38 pm

I am in need of a new laptop as I move forward with my career. I currently have an older Intel powered Lenovo.  While it has always met my needs, my job is changing where I will be on the road more and my current laptop is just too heavy!


Gave away

From Chris Gearhart on January 24, 2012 :: 7:40 pm

My middle son needed a laptop for his first year at school so I gave him mine. So I don’t have a laptop, I would like to win so I would have something.

My laptop got a nasty

From Charlene on January 24, 2012 :: 7:46 pm

My laptop got a nasty virus recently and right now can’t afford to take it in to get it fixed.  The CD drive has not worked in it for years and the battery has very little life left in it.  It is very sad :( right now.  Sniff.


Why Not me?

From Holly Borghello on January 24, 2012 :: 7:46 pm

I saw this giveaway in my Tech email and said, “Why Not?”


I need it!

From Renee on January 24, 2012 :: 7:47 pm

I’m graduating college and I need a reliable laptop for working on the go!


Lighter, faster, better

From Tori on January 24, 2012 :: 7:53 pm

Everything a gal wants in a laptop. Hauling around my 3 year old Dell is giving me awesome biceps, but really I’d prefer to have more up-to-date technology…


Poor me

From T.E.A. on January 24, 2012 :: 7:53 pm

I am disabled but still try to enjoy keeping up with technology but it is hard. My current laptop is 6 years old and my desktop is over 10! i have kept up as much as I can but a new lenovo would be a blessing.


My MacBook is giving me

From Dutchie on January 24, 2012 :: 7:58 pm

My MacBook is giving me grieve and I would like to try something else


Just For Me?

From Judy on January 24, 2012 :: 8:02 pm

This couldn’t come at a better time.  My daughter lives in Texas and I live in Arizona.  She doesn’t have a computer, and with two small kids, it’s not
likely she will be able to afford one any time soon.
This would let us communicate so much easier, and maybe we could get a web-cam and I would becable to see those precious grandkids more often!  Thanks for the opportunity.

I've always wanted a lap-top.

From Kat Stice on January 24, 2012 :: 8:08 pm

I’ve always wanted a lap-top. I’m saving money to get one. So far, I have $150 but that’s long ways to $1200.

From Cathaleen Larsen on January 24, 2012 :: 8:28 pm

From LB on January 24, 2012 :: 8:30 pm

Why I REALLY need a new laptop

From T on January 24, 2012 :: 8:31 pm

My current laptop is very old and its held together by duct tape - How long can that work?!?!


Ultrabook Giveaway

From Katherine B. on January 24, 2012 :: 8:32 pm

My harddrive recently died, and I’ve been sharing a computer with my husband. A new computer would be amazing.


Virus on old PC

From Linda on January 24, 2012 :: 8:34 pm

My old PC has a virus on it and is not worth spending any money or time to clean off.

Notebook Contest

From Julee Tishma on January 24, 2012 :: 8:38 pm

Lenovo Ultrabook Giveaway

I need this laptop as a gift to my granddaughter…


I need one of my own

From Gramma Sarah on January 24, 2012 :: 8:50 pm

My husband’s laptop is often tied up
(he is using it or has it with him away from home).  I would love to have one for my own use, to store and find recipes, manage email and social media, and keep track of our finances, without having to keep him from his work.



From Cecellia on January 24, 2012 :: 8:50 pm

I need a laptop I can carry… something lighter than the 50-pounder I currently have.  I’m an old lady.  Give me a break.  wink


I got laid off right

From Dianne on January 24, 2012 :: 8:55 pm

I got laid off right after Christmas.  I need this to look for job opportunities.


Ah, sweet Lenovo

From Cynthia Frank on January 24, 2012 :: 9:01 pm

I’ve been reading lovely reviews about this computer. Though I love my ancient Dell, it’s Heavy! Which is problematic for trade shows and air travel. This slim design and fast processing would really help me keep up with work on the road.


me and the grandkids

From Don Drewry on January 24, 2012 :: 9:03 pm

Have 2-4 grandkids with me everyday and they have all reached tech age—from to to facebook


Hope to win it for my mom!

From Stephie on January 24, 2012 :: 9:04 pm

My mom’s birthday is on the 24th, this is going to be a perfect for her. I hope I can win this!


In dire straits! Computer sure would help!!!♥

From Marjorie Silverman on January 24, 2012 :: 9:06 pm

I currently have a small netbook and it served its purpose for a while. Its time is up. I now have to go back to work for various reasons and this necessitates me producing large volumes of transcripts. I desperately need a really, really good laptop. This Lenovo happens to be exactly what I am looking for. It would be a dream come true. I’m not sure what we have to do in order to qualify here but all I can do is say how grateful I’d be if I were ever to win this wonderful prize.




From D WALL on January 24, 2012 :: 9:09 pm

I need a new Lenovo to give to my nephew. He is getting old enough to need a computer for school and neither parent will let him use one. It would come in handy for him since I can’t give him my laptop. I need it to be able to work.
