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.

From sharon on January 25, 2012 :: 10:54 pm

Would love to replace my old desktop with a Lenova laptop



From Ralph Gerard Mercuri on January 25, 2012 :: 10:58 pm

I am on my knees, begging you please, Yes, this is where I am at. Technology has done this to me….
Have mercy…..Give it to me !!!!



From Debbie R on January 25, 2012 :: 11:16 pm

I have a desktop. I have never had a laptop. I would love to own one.


An Update Needed for an Update Needed

From Deanna Hillman on January 25, 2012 :: 11:41 pm

My son tells me that I need an update chip when I have difficulty with the new technology.  My antiquated body tells me that I need an update chip when I lug around my antiquated and very heavy laptop.  That dinosuar (that was purchased used with all of its “issues”)keeps crashing and losing all of my work!  Don’t get me wrong, I am glad to have a laptop at all, and am appreciative of the blessing that I already have.  However, I am trying to go to school online and travel back and forth to see after my elderly parents.  Also, I write papers for people online for extra income to supplement my husband’s cut to four days a week, but I can’t seem to maintain a means to make this possible.  A new laptop (that we could never afford) that wouldn’t weigh a ton and actually do what I need it to do would be a true miracle!


My 9 year old laptop's

From Cary Gordon on January 25, 2012 :: 11:45 pm

My 9 year old laptop’s been pushing up the daisies for about a year now since the hard drive died, so I’ve been stuck with a 6 year old desktop.  I need something manufactured this decade!


I have a bad back

From Lantana H. on January 25, 2012 :: 11:48 pm

This laptop sounds perfect for me I really need something really light weight because I have degenerative disc disease and carrying a heavy laptop is not an option for me.  I work and go to school so I would definitely put it to good use.


Why I would love to win

From Beth Ann on January 25, 2012 :: 11:58 pm

My laptop is over 4 years old and I use it for my job.  I would love to have new laptop and it would sure make my job easier having to carry a new lighter one.

From Claudia Davis on January 26, 2012 :: 2:02 am

I would love the new Intel-powered Ultrabook. I am going back to school next Fall for an advanced degree and I have a 4 year old laptop that is both slow and quite heavy. I live far from the school and travel via public transportation so this laptop is really needed!


Ultrabook submission.

My son is getting older

From Serge on January 26, 2012 :: 4:59 am

My son is getting older and really wants his own computer—I do a lot of work on mine so its not as available as he’d like.  He’s been really good this year too!

From saminder gumer on January 26, 2012 :: 6:18 am

From Larry B on January 26, 2012 :: 6:49 am

From Danielle Oyen on January 26, 2012 :: 7:19 am

Lenovo Ultrabook

From F. Lee Howard on January 26, 2012 :: 10:23 am

After seeing the Ultrabook my repair guy had (my old 6+ lb laptop got a virus), I would love to have one.  Simply beautiful!


Good for you,

Viola player who “mocked” the ringtone during his recital. Hey, I would love a new Lenovo Ultrabook, so I can watch more amazing videos. Love Techlicious too.

From Crissy Durst on January 26, 2012 :: 10:49 am

I need this laptop because it would help me get things done, I currently do not own a laptop, so it would be great for the whole family!


Why do you need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook?

From Rovi Siapno on January 26, 2012 :: 10:55 am

I need a new Intel powered Ultrabook to help me in my study or review. Based on the specifications mentioned, I know this laptop will be amazing and very useful in my daily life.


Oh! It's a beauty

From Scott Y on January 26, 2012 :: 11:09 am

I’d love a new laptop to make tasks easier. Plus it would be great to take to work to watch movies on. Plus I won’t need to skip Thanksgiving the next time I have money that time of year, in order to camp out for a black Friday deal like I did the last time I bought a laptop over 4yrs ago


I have my pc in

From Homero Gutierrez on January 26, 2012 :: 11:19 am

I have my pc in a family members room, so when he sleeps I cant use it, I need something portable to continue my pc usage.


Yes please. I'll even beg...Please, please

From Joseph Weiler on January 26, 2012 :: 12:32 pm

Never had a laptop. Barely have a desktop. I put it together using hand me down components from my kids and brother.
Both kids have laptops and desktops for college which I helped pay for. My Ex-spouse also has both.
I can’t afford upgrades let alone a new unit.
I could really use a new ultrabook before my Presario causes me to shun computers for life..


I don't own a computer . . .

From Patty on January 26, 2012 :: 1:01 pm

My computer died about two months ago so I read your Techlicious Newsletters on my work computer.  I find the news and updates are applicable and helpful for both my work and my personal interests.

Winning a new Lenovoa Ultrabook would be great!


Taking care of a preemie

From Sylvia on January 26, 2012 :: 1:08 pm

I need a Lenova so that I can keep track of all the medical appointments and information on my little guy who was born 9 weeks premature. Also, it would help me as I research about his various challenges.



From Jayne Tubergen on January 26, 2012 :: 1:20 pm

My son has Asperger’s and requires all the tech help that he can get for school.

From t garcia on January 26, 2012 :: 9:46 pm

Mine is sooooo old


lighter weight

From Linda McFarland on January 26, 2012 :: 9:51 pm

My first laptop is a 17 inch screen and heavy. I didn’t think I would be wanting to travel with my computer, but I do, and it is too big and heavy to be on the go. The Lenovo Ultrabook would be perfect to carry on my trips.


I NEED it for school!

From Janna Johnson on January 26, 2012 :: 10:35 pm

I NEED it for school! I am starting graduate school in June and could use a newer better laptop!!
Thanks so much! janna johnson

From Linda Kish on January 27, 2012 :: 12:13 am

I don’t have a good sob story or anything. I am just older, disability retired, kinda low on funds and could really use a hot new ultrabook to speed up my computing.  It would make me so very happy.

Single mom of 5...

From Emery on January 27, 2012 :: 7:01 am

Single mom of 5 kids, 4 with disabilities, barely making the rent payment due to being on disability myself (early onset MS, survivor of horrific abuse), trying to get back into college for a Doctorate in Vet Medicine, no car, no money, walking miles every day with holes in my shoes… Need something positive to happen for a change!


Why I Need a New Lenovo Ultrabook

From Margay on January 27, 2012 :: 9:01 am

I need a new Lenovo ultrabook for a couple of reasons. The first is that I am an active writer/blogger and it is hard writing my stories/posts on my ancient Acer - I keep having to backtrack to put in certain letters because the keys keep sticking! Very frustrating.

The second reason I need an Ultrabook is that I suffer from Multiple Sclrosis and oftentimes get very exhausted and just need to stretch out to rest my body. It would be so nice to do that with a lightweight laptop so I can still get some work done!

Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!


My laptop is REALLY OLD!

From Edicx on January 27, 2012 :: 9:10 am

I have a laptop since 2007, and it’s got 4 keys broken! I’ve to use another keyboard so I can type LOL. Please give me the Lenovo!
