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 to work smarter instead of harder

From Jill Pfluke on January 24, 2012 :: 9:27 pm

What better way to work smarter than with a new Ultrabook? It’s 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor,  128 GB solid state drive, and 8 hours of battery life, in addition to its sleek more portable design would help me tremendously in keeping my New Year’s Resolution-to achieve a better balance between home and work (which consists of 2 jobs). Thanks for this opportunity!


Fingers Crossed!

From Brian Banks on January 24, 2012 :: 9:29 pm

I travel a lot for my job and I wouldn’t have to carry around this heavy, bulky, HP anymore!

From susan on January 24, 2012 :: 9:31 pm

My desk top computer is about ready to die. I need a new one but can’t afford one, so would like very much to win this one.


Definitely need a new laptop

From Susan on January 24, 2012 :: 9:33 pm

My old Lenovo, while a workhorse, has done its part and needs to be retired!


I don't need it as much

Tablet giveaway

From Anne on January 24, 2012 :: 9:34 pm

It would be great to get a new laptop to do my work on.  My current one is quite old and clunky.


It would be nice

From yvonne w on January 24, 2012 :: 9:35 pm

I never win anything. A nice, shiny new laptop would be nice! Thanks!


Would love to win the Ultrabook...

From Deena Shorkey on January 24, 2012 :: 9:36 pm

I am a 59 yr old grandma who lives with my elderly parents, taking care of them as their dementia changes them almost before my eyes. Additionally, I have recently gained custody of my 10 year old grandson (the oldest of my nine grandchildren). Winning the Lenova Ultrabook would be an awesome and amazing thing for me; I would use it to access the internet where I have recently begun to blog as a means of expressing my observations of life as caregiver to different people and in different situations in my life (like reflecting on the three weeks my brother was in Hospice before passing away this past October). I would also be able to use it keep in touch with my facebook pals, as well as keep track of my book sales on and set up listings on eBay, to further supplement my income. All in all, it would be a huge help to me and I would love to win it!


One Computer for Family of 3

From Shantella on January 24, 2012 :: 9:37 pm

We’re a small family, but, we have a teenager who constantly needs to get on the computer—homework, facebook, etc. The adults need a computer to use of their own!


Christina - - I'm

From Christina on January 24, 2012 :: 9:45 pm

Christina - - I’m a subscriber, and I need a new Lenovo Ultrabook because I have only an old laptop that I use to write music, movie and book reviews on the web, besides my own creative work in poetry and fiction.  The Lenovo Ultrabook would go beyond my wildest expectations!



From Kathy Lawrence on January 24, 2012 :: 9:46 pm

I have a 10 year old desk top that has a blue screen more than the internet and I have a borrowed laptop that needs to be returned soon:(



From Sue Gentile on January 24, 2012 :: 9:48 pm

My 10 year old PC is on its last leg and I am desperately trying to eke out a couple more months of use.  This would be such a miracle. Here’s hoping!

Retired Grandmother

From Ruby Little on January 24, 2012 :: 10:14 pm

I could use a laptop to get connected with my children & grandchildren who are all on-line daily. It would also fill the void left from not having to go to work.


Lenovo Ultrabook-Yesh!

From Cheryl Garrett on January 24, 2012 :: 10:15 pm

Starting my own business and it would be great to be able to work at home instead of at the library.



Lenovo Giveaway!

From Sheri on January 24, 2012 :: 10:17 pm

I would love a new Lenovo Ultrabook, because I currently have a 3-year old 9” Acer that I take with me to science fiction conventions to blog.  Would love to have an updated thinner and lighter computer!


Need to retire desktop

From Angela Little on January 24, 2012 :: 10:18 pm

Desperate Need!

From Lisa Sicora on January 24, 2012 :: 10:19 pm

I need this new laptop because my old laptop was what I got from my ex-husband. I have a new life now, and this laptop crashes constantly and the cord is wearing out. The battery is already dead, and I believe it’s dying a slow death. I REALLY need a new one, and would absolutely love to win this!! Thanks!


Don't have one yet

From Marcia Gliss on January 24, 2012 :: 10:19 pm

Killing my back...

From LeeAnn P. on January 24, 2012 :: 10:23 pm

I lug my laptop with me everywhere and it’s so heavy and bulky it’s killing my back!


Laptop Give-away

From Sharon on January 24, 2012 :: 10:24 pm

Ok, the main reason I need this laptop is because I don’t have one at all!  I’m hoping I’ll need one soon, as I’ve just applied to be the manager of the after-school program in a near-by town.  Needless to say, this job will require a lot of work, I’ll need someplace for information storage, and this laptop will make it easier to take work home with me!  See, that’s how badly I want the job (and the computer!)


A New Laptop!

From Drew on January 24, 2012 :: 10:28 pm

Right now all I have is a desktop.  An ultrabook would be nice.

From Glenn Murphy on January 24, 2012 :: 10:44 pm

I work on second shift so I rarely have time to sit at the computer at home and catch up and do personal work.  This Lenovo would allow me to work/catch up anywhere!

From Ruth on January 24, 2012 :: 11:16 pm

My 19 year old daughter says I need this “cause you’re super baller”. Don’t know about that, just know I would love to have a laptop to do all my “business” and perhaps play a little.
