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.

Lenovo for a busy family!!

From Kalani Kircher Black on January 25, 2012 :: 4:35 am

We have 1 computer for a family of 4! We could really use an Ultra to ward of family squabbles about who gets to be online! With our Kindergardener wanting to be on the computer as well- It’s turning into stiff competition-

My laptop is woefully out

From Bill on January 25, 2012 :: 4:43 am

My laptop is woefully out of date.



From Sara on January 25, 2012 :: 6:31 am

I am a fan of Lenovo and could use the ultra thin model to keep my skills up to date while on the go.


Already a subscriber. This

From deb c on January 25, 2012 :: 6:47 am

Already a subscriber.  This would be a dream come true.  My husband has to travel a lot and when he does he takes the laptop.  That leaves me without one and I feel like I’m out of touch without it. Wouldn’t he be jealous if I won this.  Thank you for the chance.


Never owned a laptop

From Therese on January 25, 2012 :: 7:02 am

A close friend has a

From Maree on January 25, 2012 :: 10:39 am

A close friend has a computer so old it is almost impossible to use for work purposes.  Her economic situation prevents her from purchasing a new machine…either desktop or lap top.

If I win, the computer will go to her.


Light and Powerful Laptop

From LC on January 25, 2012 :: 10:52 am

This laptop would be nice for my son who just started high school. The weight makes it practical for him to carry it to and from school, and the battery makes it suitable for extensive amounts of time without worrying about charging frequently.

From Michael Doyne on January 25, 2012 :: 10:53 am

why ask why?!?!?!

Why I need a new Lenovo laptop

From leonard cannon on January 25, 2012 :: 11:30 am

I don’t need it for myself, but for my youngest daughter who (at 37) has finally turned her life around. She has been enrolled in college for almost 6 months now to get a degree & make something of her life. She has a very old laptop (not sure which brand) that barely works anymore & it is also missing 4 keys. I would love to win this to give to her to show her how proud I am of her.


Slim Lenovo

From Jaime Lozano on January 25, 2012 :: 11:31 am

I am on my third Targus computer bag because they can not keep up with the weight of my Samsung laptop and its charger, the i-pad, the i-pod, the portable mouse, the WD hard drive, the collection of USBs and my wallet with the credit cards to pay for all of the above!!!!
A new Lenovo would solve all of that.

From Sarah Hirsch on January 25, 2012 :: 12:27 pm

i need a new laptop because mine is dragging.  i can tell it’s going to die soon, and i would rather replace it now than face a day in the future when it crashes and i’m computer-less!


Need Lenovo Ultrabook

From T Raines on January 25, 2012 :: 12:38 pm

I need a new Lenovo Ultrabook because the only access we have to internet/email is our home PC. With a Lenovo Ultrabook, we can stay connected and productive on the road. It would also relieve some tension when one of us is working on the computer and the other has to work on-line. With a Lenovo Ultrabook, we can both stay productive and access email simultaneously!

From Sharon on January 25, 2012 :: 1:04 pm

My system is really slow and it freezes up often (due to lack of resources probably) and I’d love to replace it with this zippy speedy workhorse of a laptop. Thanks for the chance!
