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.

I need to restore my family's belief in Lenovo

From ptlf on January 25, 2012 :: 1:32 pm

Just last month I had to “put down” a less than 3 year old Lenovo laptop due to too many problems it wasn’t worth fixing. I need a new Lenovo so my family (and I) will believe that their computers are not junk.


Lenovo give away

From Donna Estevez on January 25, 2012 :: 1:40 pm

I am a full-time disabled student that spends two days a week in classrooms. It is difficult to have to carry books and laptop around all day; so having a light-weight Lenovo would be a blessing.


My old laptop gave out

From Janella S. on January 25, 2012 :: 1:43 pm

My old laptop gave out a few years back and I haven’t had the money to replace it. I’d live to have the mobility of a latop again so I could get stuff done while chasing the children.


Hubby has never owned a laptop of his own.

From Aletra Degrange on January 25, 2012 :: 1:44 pm

I would love to surprise my husband with a sleek new Lenovo.  He is about to embark on a second career and leading technology is a must.


We have a laptop and

From Gail P on January 25, 2012 :: 1:46 pm

We have a laptop and a netbook, and they are both ancient, plus we have to share them with our little boy who needs his fix of Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso online!


Pick me! Pick me!

From Aurlie Dover on January 25, 2012 :: 2:16 pm

It would really lift my spirits to win. An ultrabook would be so cool!


I Want One!

From Dona Gould on January 25, 2012 :: 2:24 pm

As a writer, freelance editor and ghostwriter this lightweigt dream machine would enable me to write no matter where I am. Stuck in traffic, in line, or waiting to pick up the kids. Great prize.


Random act of kindness

From Gretchen Maguire on January 25, 2012 :: 2:24 pm

My college son and I had the same laptop model. One night he fell asleep studying and when he woke he rapidly closed the lid of his laptop. His earbuds were inside and the screen broke and all you can see is a thousand colored lines. In a random act of kindness I offered to swap the hard drives, so now I have a laptop that is permanently tethered to an old monitor. I commute by bus for 3 hours a day and really would like to be able to use the laptop during the bus trip.


Lenovo of My Dreams...

From LHiltz on January 25, 2012 :: 2:30 pm

My old Dell is about to die and I work for a non-profit. A new Lenovo IdeaPad will help me raise money for this terrific organization.

Thanks for the opportunity!

From jules mcnubbin on January 25, 2012 :: 2:40 pm

I cant afford to buy a new laptop. Mine stopped working, i took it to the repair place twice but its not worth repairing at this point. I really need a new laptop!

Both my and and daughter-in-law are now unemployed, with a new baby, & we want to start a home based business together (I may be joining them, thankfully I missed the 1st layoff’s).  I have an old dell desktop I have had for about 10 yrs but we really need this laptop to get us going! Please.

Gift for my mom

From Andria Schurman on January 25, 2012 :: 3:29 pm

My mom travels a lot for work and her laptop is just to heavy for her to carry every where. I would love to win this laptop to give it to her.

From Bren Ferris on January 25, 2012 :: 3:30 pm

I use an old Dell 5150 desktop and hope to have a laptop to replace it when it wears out. I’m disabled & unemployed so I can’t afford to buy a new one.

From mark on January 25, 2012 :: 3:41 pm

i’m learning android programming. with a laptop i’ll be able to program while waiting for my daughter to finish her swim practice and then she can use it on the way home. it’ll also be useful while travelling giving a way to store photos and minimize the number of compactflash cards i need to carry.

I'm getting Old.

From Bonnie Miller on January 25, 2012 :: 4:00 pm

Oh wait, it’s my laptop getting Old. I’m still young at heart. LOL.


Ultrabook, Yes Please!

From Mike on January 25, 2012 :: 4:02 pm

I like bargains and I especially love FREE! Red Hot Chile Peppers says it best, “Give it away, give it away, give it away now”.

Yes please!



From Marsha Scott on January 25, 2012 :: 4:04 pm

What a cool and collected young man! He could have gone off on the person who’s phone rang but instead chose to make light of the situation and win everyone’s respect and put a smile on their faces.

My lappy is getting old and is missing keys. I really need another one in order to keep in touch with family.


I have an old laptop,

From jol gillette on January 25, 2012 :: 4:10 pm

I have an old laptop, this will be so nice to win.


Currently, I have a monstrous

From Jody W on January 25, 2012 :: 4:18 pm

Currently, I have a monstrous HP laptop that is really unwieldy to carry around outside of the house.  My backup is an ipad which is super light, but lacking in some respects.  I miss flash, I can’t edit my blog easily, and without a keyboard I just can’t type as fast as I’d like.  An ultra book would be awesome to take with me when I need more than the iPad, but don’t want to lug an 8 pound laptop.


Being a person who buys

From Van on January 25, 2012 :: 4:20 pm

Being a person who buys the latest tech and builds his own PC, I honestly don’t need it. I might want to replace my current laptop or even give it away to someone else who needs it.

I wished I had a sob story but hopefully the gods bestow some luck upon me.


Starving artist needs a computer!

From Loretta on January 25, 2012 :: 4:29 pm

I gave away my 8 year old laptop to a friend who really needed a computer. Now I don’t have anything portable. (Not that an 8 year old laptop was really all that portable>) I could really use this to take with me to art shows!


Laptop Giveaway

From LaptopDeprived on January 25, 2012 :: 4:31 pm

Would love to win this since my family does not have a computer.  This would be a great start!

From daren davey on January 25, 2012 :: 4:49 pm

I needa Ultrabook because i do not have a personal computer of my own, it would be nice to get out of the stone age technology wise.


I never win anything

From spincus2000 on January 25, 2012 :: 5:06 pm

It would be a nice change of pace for me to win the Ultrabook


My 13 year old

From tracey byram on January 25, 2012 :: 5:15 pm

My 13 year old granddaughter isn’t always able to get to the library to do research for school. She could use a laptop to research for school and hopefully even improve her grades.



From Don Zinn on January 25, 2012 :: 5:32 pm

I need an ultra because I am in danger of otherwise going to the dark side and becoming an Apple bigot - my laptop is too heavy to carry around and the Ipad is sooooooo tempting…so tempt me back to the right side and give me a Lenovo Ultra.


First of all, thank you

From Pamela Haddad on January 25, 2012 :: 5:56 pm

First of all, thank you for the chance to win a new Lenovo Ultrabook!
My laptop isn’t too old, so I need to give it to my mom and I’ll use the Ultrabook so we can stay in touch via Skype or maybe Google Talk.


I think the Lenovo Ultrabook

From Grandma Jeanie on January 25, 2012 :: 7:10 pm

I think the Lenovo Ultrabook would help me to stay up on technology and in tune with my Grandchildren and Children better.


Lenovo For Lennie

From Lennie Trompert on January 25, 2012 :: 7:16 pm

Winning this ultra Book Laptop would be so exciting and usefull for my thirteen year old grandson.
He has a left hand handicap since birth which he has excepted with courage, while going on to achieving success in his education.
He does get some computer time at school but is very minimal, so his very own leptop would certanly be benificial to him, and his future education. Thank you, Lenovo for this opportunity!
Regards, Lennie


I need it for college

From Sean on January 25, 2012 :: 7:18 pm

I’m going to college soon and I desperately need a new laptop for my studies. Neither my parents nor I can afford one right now, and this would just be such a blessing.


We need a new computer!

From M on January 25, 2012 :: 7:23 pm

Our old desktop is still running Windows XP and starting to give up the ghost. Also, our daughter will need one for school in the not too distant future. Having a new Lenovo would be great!


My laptop is on its last days!!!

From Kenia on January 25, 2012 :: 7:28 pm

I was already a subscriber =]

I want to win a new Intel-powered Ultrabook because my old laptop is on its last days. The battery doesn’t work anymore. I can only use for about an hour a day because the ac adaptor is all taped up. The keyboard is missing letters. I have been trying to save money to buy another laptop but for some reason or another I end up using the money to pay for the bills.

Thank you for the opportunity =]



From Nick Keller on January 25, 2012 :: 7:42 pm

I think I should win the ultrabook because my birthday is in June, and I don’t have a laptop right now. (I know, lame.)

From Susan W. on January 25, 2012 :: 9:57 pm

I would love to win the laptop. I’ve never had one. It would really come in handy. Just the thought of carrying my computer around is amazing.



From Jess on January 25, 2012 :: 10:08 pm
