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 have 2 old PCs taking up too much space on two desks. I need to get rid of one desk.



From LORA ASHLEY on February 22, 2012 :: 11:41 am

I would be very grateful for a new computer as mine is 8 years old, and there are some replacement parts no longer available.  I just love your website and all those savvy tips you provide.  I share many of them with my family and friends.  It’s a lot like my DAILY WORD and look forward to it each morning when I get up and check my email.



From LORA ASHLEY on February 22, 2012 :: 11:46 am

My computer is approaching 9 years of age and is just a little outdated.  I would be very grateful for the opportunity to replace it.  I love your savvy little blog and look forward to the tips it provides and frequently do share them with my family and friends.  It is like my DAILY WORD.


I need the Lenovo UltraBook

From Janet N on February 22, 2012 :: 11:49 am

I need the Lenovo UltraBook because my desktop is on it’s last leg after 8 years of loyal service. I’ve never owned a laptop, so this would be awesome.

Trying to run a small business with shrinking revenue

From Diane B. on February 22, 2012 :: 12:00 pm

I help my husband with his solo HVAC business.  Since the recession our business has lost revenue every year.  I am limping along on an old desk top and am responsible for doing all the accounting on Quick Books.  This desk top is on it’s way out (there’s not much memory on it)and we really need a new computer to keep us running, but so far it has not been affordable.  Especially With gas prices going up it’s so hard to make enough to buy a new computer.  We would love a new computer to run our business. Thanks for your consideration.


Laptop heaven

From Marta on February 22, 2012 :: 12:17 pm

Here I sit with a borrowed iPad I have to give back this weekend. I had a humpy dumpy fall that fractured my pelvis and sacrum so I have been sitting in this bed since Friday the 13th wishing I had a laptop. I had to take off this term of school, but I should be able to start back in the spring. Would love to have a good laptop to take with me.


keeping it moving

From Alice F. on February 22, 2012 :: 12:23 pm

I work in emergency services and when stuff happens I need to be able to get online ASAP. It’s my job to let others know what’s happening so we can all get where we need to be safely…using all technology available. But the laptop they give me - NO BUENO! I would love to be your guinea pig!


I need a new computer

From Natalie G on February 22, 2012 :: 12:23 pm

We just spilt a glass of water on the keyboard of our laptop and now the keyboard is fried.
Could really us a new one.

From Kathy on February 22, 2012 :: 1:28 pm

I have an old thinkpad that works when it wants to,a newer laptop that is lighter and faster would be greatly appreciated.


Decisions, Decisions

From Chris Kallin on February 22, 2012 :: 1:28 pm

I have been romanced by the Macbook Air.  While saving for it, tech media has made me aware that there are far more affordable Windows-based options to be had.  As a result, I’ve been paralyzed by indecision.  To make matters worse, it appears that Apple may be rolling out a new generation of Air in the next couple-few months and it might be operating on a wholly different processor.  So with that said, do I look at it eagerly as an improvement or stay away and look at is a first-gen rollout?  Argh!


Starting off a new venture with the right stuff

From Julia Gregory on February 22, 2012 :: 1:35 pm

My husband is beginning a new job with an exciting, innovative, gonna-change-the-way-you-do-business product!  This computer great way to start off!


Gateway about to die from old age . . .

From Cornelia on February 22, 2012 :: 1:40 pm

I need a new laptop but I feel guilty not using my six year old gateway until it actually drops dead!


I need a new laptop

From Robin Fisher on February 22, 2012 :: 2:09 pm

Because the one I have is very slow and work from home.  It would be nice to have one that would help me get my work done on a normal workday instead of working half the night.


Love Lenova!!!

From Lisa on February 22, 2012 :: 2:51 pm

Lenovo UltraBook

From Sheila on February 22, 2012 :: 3:11 pm

I need a laptop to use for my full time job since I work away from the office and I am trying to start a craft business.  But more importantly, it would be great to be able to connect with my son who just joined the Marines.


Giveaway to Me

From Peekr on February 22, 2012 :: 3:44 pm

My old portable, a Gateway, is showing signs of age and once in a while, the backlighting on the LCD display just goes out. If you don’t know what that means, just suffice it to say, that’s bad. Winning an Ultrabook would solve my problem!


really need a notebook so

From Daniel M on February 22, 2012 :: 3:47 pm

really need a notebook so i can get off this desk and work/play around the house or out on the back deck, tired of being stuck in one room with my desktop!

Need a Lenovo Ultrabook

From Janet Starn on February 22, 2012 :: 4:47 pm

I am a writer and use the computer to make my pages ewadable.  Since I use the computer every day, having a Lenovo Ultrabook would add greatly to my pleasure in writing.  I culd accomplish more and do a better job.


Laptop died

From Phil on February 22, 2012 :: 5:19 pm

you know those crappy hinges on 17” notebooks? Well, they suck and now mine is effectively worthless…


Get worn out lugging the dinosaur around

From Diane on February 22, 2012 :: 6:09 pm

My husband is worn out carrying our daughter’s old fossil Toshiba computer through the airports while limping on a knee that needs replacing and he also has a cane and me with crutches and a removable air cast to the knee struggling along side him with a carry-on bag with yet another 17” Toshiba that is 7 years old.  We really could use just one small computer that is light weight and portable.  How nice that would be for us!


need laptop to help with dad's care

From Barbara Kaye on February 22, 2012 :: 7:02 pm

I am currently the primary caretaker for my 92 yr old ailing dad. I am at his house almost 24-7 and could really use a laptop to connect with nursing services as well as to look up health issues which seems to be a constant issue. Sometimes I need an answer right away and this would be really useful so I would not have to wait for a call back from the nurses before taking any action.


My wife could use this. Works for me for no pay.

From Mike B on February 22, 2012 :: 7:41 pm

I don’t know what I would do without my wife.  She helps me run my small business and does everything from doing the bookkeeping to running the office.  I can’t afford to pay her and she is using an old computer to do everything.  She’d love to work on a new computer and not have to worry that she’ll loose all the data she’s put in over the years.


Why do you need a

From JD Carroz on February 22, 2012 :: 8:17 pm

Why do you need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook?
I need power in a small form factor.
I need a laptop my wife can carry
while hauling the kids to their
various activities.
I need some Ultra love.

Heard great things about Lenovo

From Melissa on February 22, 2012 :: 10:41 pm

I have heard great things about Lenovo and would like to try out on my own.  Also, I will be a mom soon and would like to start out tech savy and organized.  Please help me by giving me a Lenovo!


I'm a subscriber :)

From Erica C. on February 22, 2012 :: 11:10 pm

I’m a subscriber smile  I could definitely use this awesome laptop since my current one is a couple years old and is extremely slow, besides the fact that I have to keep it plugged in all the time since it won’t hold a charge from a battery…so it’s not really great as a “laptop” is it?!



From Pauline M on February 22, 2012 :: 11:22 pm

With two kids, my laptop tends to go through a beating and they are great students with awesome grades! Anything I can do to help them out is great!


Mom on the move

From Bonnie Horick on February 22, 2012 :: 11:27 pm

As a teacher, student, parent and home manager, a new Lenovo ultrabook would help me keep it all together wherever I am.


I'd love this!

From Rebecca Simons on February 23, 2012 :: 12:25 am

After many years, I decided to go back to school to get my master’s degree.  I’m halfway through and my computer just died big time!  I need a replacement in a major way but don’t have the cash to buy one. I’d love a Lenovo!


I'm fast approaching 30 years

From Dana on February 23, 2012 :: 12:47 am

I’m fast approaching 30 years in “the software industry” as a techie. One can never have enough hardware - let alone the latest h/w.



From Walter Thomas on February 23, 2012 :: 1:47 am

As a writer, the Lenovo/IBM keyboard has the right touch. My present lap top needs a transplant of speed and using the latest Windows is exactly what the doctor ordered. Thanks…..


I can use a new

From Richard Psomas on February 23, 2012 :: 2:26 am

I can use a new laptop because the one I have ia an IBM thinkpad thats so old it doesn’t even have a touchpad.


I need a new Intel-powered

From Jaque R. on February 23, 2012 :: 7:36 am

I need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook because my hous was robbed about a month ago and my laptop was stolen. :-(
Thank you.


Why I could use a Lenovo

From Robin Forbes on February 23, 2012 :: 8:25 am

Oh boy, could I! All my computers have been used,
and being on Social Security, I can’t afford a new one. Used means they aren’t much good for everyone else, but alright for me.

Don’t get me wrong! I’m thankful for the used ones, but it would be nice to have a new one just once…:)


I need one for school

From Claire on February 23, 2012 :: 8:44 am

I need one for school because my current laptop is really old and clunky. It’s a pain to heft around campus!


New BFF :)

From Oana on February 23, 2012 :: 9:01 am

I don’t touch my boyfriend as much as I touch my old BFF, the 5 human years old laptop I have now. I know the theory for animals. Does it apply here too? smile)

The one I have is tired and wants to retire, so a new baby would be the best way to let this one rest in peace.

Can’t wait!!!

Lenovo Ultrabook

From Beth on February 23, 2012 :: 11:22 am

I need a new laptop as mine has hated me from Day 1. I took it out of the box and after 2 frustrating weeks, I brought it to a tech who told me the motherboard was broken, I get it home aand the cursor jumps EVERYWHERE all the time, when I am searching, reading. or worse yet, writing. It takes me at least 15 minutes to type out a 2 line e-mail. I have been on this entry for 1/2 hour


I don't own a laptop

From adrienne bireley on February 23, 2012 :: 11:28 am

I don’t own a laptop OR tablet

portable and quick.  For my insane life.



From EDWARD MICHELS on February 23, 2012 :: 12:06 pm

Bought a Blackberry playbook, wish I bought the Lenova Ultrabook
