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 an ultrabook to gain portability and battery life, without sacrificing power!



From James Davidson on February 16, 2012 :: 12:03 pm

Heat, my old Acer Ferarri, runs so hot, it has gone through countless fans, and a couple of burned out hard drives.


My dell is so old...

From Cristi Reid on February 16, 2012 :: 12:26 pm

... that it has taken me three days - and counting - to update the software on my ipod.  My computer is not just slow - I had to call in some scientists - to measure its progress in evolutionary time!


Definitely A Want

From KJ on February 17, 2012 :: 12:13 pm

I really need (want) this Lenovo because I just love new technology and pc’s but am now retired and living on Social Security. I’ve been looking for a part time job for 2 years with no luck so now I can no longer indulge in new techie stuff!

My current laptop is old and slow! I need an upgrade!


I could use a new

From Geoff K on February 18, 2012 :: 4:54 pm

I could use a new Intel-powered
Ultrabook because it would come in
extremely handy to take with me on
job interviews over the next few
years and when I eventually move to
a new city. My life’s going to be
pretty transient, and I’ll have to
do a lot of work and networking on
the go, so a lightweight but powerful
notebook would be a godsend.  Thanks!

I need an Ultrabook because...

From Laurie Lacour Bolanos on February 19, 2012 :: 7:58 pm

they are portable and easy to take with me. They have a long-lasting battery. They are light-weight. And I would feel important toting one around! However the main reason, is because I am writing a book and I could pull the Ultrabook out when an idea strikes me and write it down.


I'm a subscriber and I'd

From Debra Ford on February 19, 2012 :: 9:01 pm

I’m a subscriber and I’d love to get the Ultrabook because I’m living with two pre-teens who hog the computer night and day and I really need a computer of my own.

From Li Tsai on February 20, 2012 :: 12:34 am

From Kristine Vanderford on February 21, 2012 :: 8:02 am

I lent my laptop to my daughter so she could get some work done. It was stolen from her house and she is devastated, and so am I. An Ultrabook would be a Godsend to us.

Thanks for the opportunity to win a great prize.



From Paul Conrow on February 21, 2012 :: 11:29 am

You mean I DON’T have to figure out how to care an extension cord long enough for any traveling I may want to do, Desktop Tower, Monitor, Keyboard, and Mouse to make the step into the twenty-teens???


"Why do you need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook?"

From Beth Perkins on February 21, 2012 :: 11:47 am

i have a sorry excuse of a computer right now and could really use something that has a powerful Intel Core. something that is more reliable then what i have right now. but if i do win, i wouldnt be keeping the ultrabook for myself, i would give it to someone that needs it much more then me. thank you for the opportunity .... it is so appreciated !!


Hubby needs one

From Rachel S on February 21, 2012 :: 11:50 am

My husband has been doing freelance sports writing as a hobby, he needs something he can use to write when he is at an event and needs to write the story right away. A laptop like this would help him out a lot.


An Oldie But a Goodie

From tthurber on February 21, 2012 :: 11:50 am

I would like to give my always-on-the-go 80 year old Dad this laptop, so that, among many other things, he can always have all of his paperwork for his job with him in a neat and portable capacity.


I currently subscribe to your

From Tycie Martinez on February 21, 2012 :: 11:50 am

I currently subscribe to your newsletter and follow you on Twitter.  I would love a new laptop as my Dell w/Windows Vista decided to “update” and removed my access to the internet.  Nothing will fix it and I really do not want to purchase an new PC.  A Lenovo would come in handy before tax season ends.


I'd love a new Lenovo

From madeleine on February 21, 2012 :: 12:04 pm

I’d love a new Lenovo ultraviolet because I’m a full time student, and having a great mix of power + portability would be amazing. Plus that battery life!!!


My OLD laptop too heavy!

From JEANIE on February 21, 2012 :: 12:19 pm

I love usine my laptop but it is too heavy to hold in my lap.
This is supposed to be a random drawing so personal reasons are just that personal.

From Jason Rocco on February 21, 2012 :: 12:24 pm

I’d love something portable with a great battery so that I can go into schools and teach kids about responsible web surfing and social media etiquette.


Need something compact & powerful

From Raciel D on February 21, 2012 :: 12:33 pm

I need to win this as I need a laptop that’s powerful and compact but that’s not a Netbook nor a Macbook Air. It would be perfect for work on the road. ^_^

From Kathy on February 21, 2012 :: 12:41 pm

The new Lenovo Ultrabook would make life so much easier for one who is struggling along without a working computer…please take pity and choose me!

Thanks for the opportunity!


New Computer - Lenovo

From Tracy Wright on February 22, 2012 :: 12:23 am

We have an old computer and becuase I need to travel for work, my wife who has MS is stuck at home.
She stays in touch via computer, and a new one would be peace of mind for the family.
