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 Karen Nothacker on January 24, 2012 :: 11:19 am

I have always had a desktop (currently it is a Lenovo - the best I’ve ever had!) I have never been able to afford a notebook computer - and until recently was never in a “wi-fi” position at home. I will shortly reach retirement age, and will be (frankly) busy paying off debts from this economy, so I will still not be able to afford a notebook on my own! I have looked at the tablets, but feel a notebook would be sooo much better!


From Chris Wheeler on January 24, 2012 :: 11:19 am

All I have is a tiny netbook and an old desktop model. I’s pass on the netbook to someone more needy than me if I were to win this.


All I have is a

From Bill Hines on January 24, 2012 :: 11:19 am

I want a Lenovo Ultrabook for my wife. She has a MAC desktop and I want to prove to her that an Ultrabook is just as good.


I would love a new

From Kate Carlson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I would love a new computer…I am a full-time teacher as well as a graduate student who is now battling my young children for computer time!!


I want an ultrabook!

From Kelly Collins on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I could use the ultrabook for ME, when I am paper crafting in my room upstairs away from the computer.  I could give the ultrabook to my oldest daughter, so she could take it to college in the fall.  I could give the ultrabook to my younger daughter so she won’t be on MY computer all the time.  I could give the ultrabook to my husband, because he would LOVE to be sitting on the couch watching TV and using a computer all at the same time!  So many reasons….maybe the dog would want one too….?


new technology is for me.

From Michael Spector on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I’m a computer nerd and new technology always gets me going. The new ultra book by Lenovo certainly fits that bill. I’d love to have one and experience what other companies will have next fall.


Please, oh please ...

From Robert on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I could use the new Intel-powered Ultrabook. With two daughters with heavy homework loads, they’re competing for computer time.  This would be so helpful, not to mention bring peace to our house!


Replacing old technology

From Caroline on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

We have an old netbook that just doesn’t make the grade anymore. This would be great for travel, and convenient to carry anywhere!


I love havng the newest in technology

From Lori on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I only have a little netbook and would love to have a new full sized laptop. My netbook is old and very sloooowwwww.


Why I need a new Lenovo!!

From Melissa Sisz on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

Why do I need a new laptop? I just do! wink


So far behind

From YBB on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I need a new PC and after using Lenovo at work I’ve come to realize how much of a good and sturdy machine it is. Very reliable. I think I need that in my personal life as well. Additionally I move around more and portability is a plus.


I cam contemplating a work

From J.C. Jones on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I cam contemplating a work at home situation and my Dell Studio 1537 just won’t do the trick…and being on a fixed income, it would be hard for me to purchase a new laptop anytime soon, so this would be very much appreciated.


I Could Use!

From Hugo De La Rosa on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I teach at a Catholic school, and having a dedicated laptop for my own use would be extremely beneficial. Instead of carrying around lots of paper (I’m a roving teacher) I could carry around a slim and light ultrabook with all my lesson plans, seating charts, handouts and projection material, not to mention easy internet access. I hope I win! smile

Blessings & Peace,


My kids are always on my computer!

From Laurie Berenson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:21 am

I work from home and my kids are always sneaking on my laptop—not good!  I would love to have this Ultrabook - either to keep for myself or for the rest of the fam to use.  Sounds like it’d be great to take on vacation, too!


I NEED a portable computer!!!!!

From Elizabeth Brown on January 24, 2012 :: 11:21 am

I need a new ultrabook because I only have a desktop and need the portability of a laptop.  I work from home, but I have LOTS of meetings for work where it would be so much more productive if I could have access to my files, etc. while at these meetings.  I always have to take notes by hand, and then come home and retype everything on the computer.  If I had an ultrabook, I could accomplish all of this in one step ~ WOW, that would make me a lot more productive, huh???!!!  The ultrabook sounds wonderful ~ lightweight, fast, long-lasting battery, and portable ~ sounds like the perfect solution for me!!!  Thanks for the chance to win!!!


blinking out

From Sherry Russell on January 24, 2012 :: 11:21 am

My laptop has started doing the “blinking out” thing….not a good sign!


would love this

From Thomas J Bremeier on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

I have always wanted a laptop and this would be perfect for what I need it for.


From Lorraine Samarziya on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

My 8 yeard old grandson is becoming very computer savvy but uses a computer over 6 years old. I would like to give him the Lenovo Ultrabook if I am fortunate to win one. Thank you for the chance.



From Anna Aiello on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

This ultrabook sounds like a great little laptop. My computer at home is Gateway from the mid 90’s and unbelievable slow compared to computer at work.  Purchasing a laptop seems to always end up at the bottom of my list of “things I need to spend money on”.  Thanks for the chance to win one.



From Libbie Eastburn on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

My Grandsons are taking over my computer!  I want them to have their own!


Anything for my students!

From LaVonna on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

Hello, I need the Lenovo Ultrabook for my school library because I don’t have one at work. Due to budget cuts, technology is scarce around my building. Carrying my laptop daily on top of my other supplies is wearing me out. My students call me the “bag lady” because I’m transporting my various supplies daily. I would love to have one that I can use for work with my students daily!


From Pamela Rose on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

To be able to do my school homework on a sleek, lightweight laptop when I am traveling would be such a joy!
Thanks for offering this sweepstakes.



From Jamie Feldman on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

oooh! I need this for my husband - he can easily carry this around the house and for travel. His desktop is in really bad shape.



From Anna on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

We really could use some new tech in our home


From Sharon Haas on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

The last time I was in the market for a laptop I had a choice and finally narrowed it down to 2 - a Lenovo and umm…. another brand. Unfortunately I got the other brand and along with it several years of regret. Since then I have recommended Lenovo to 2 other family members both of whom actually took my advice and have been happy users ever since. I’m still stuck waiting for my bad choice to just die so I can have a Lenovo too!


I chose wrong

From Lien Harris on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

My desktop is super OLD, and it would be so great to replace it with a new, sleek laptop.  Hope I’m a winner!



From Pamela on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

I bought a laptop just less than a year ago and it’s already giving me a truckload of problems. I bought a lemon. I don’t have the funds to purchase another one, so this would be a tech miracle/dream come true. Thanks for the opportunity!


Sweet deal!

From Melissa H on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

I would love to have this laptop because it’s super light and still powerful…I’d use it for school and my future career!


I'd love a new Lenovo

From Carolyn on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

I’d love a new Lenovo Ultrabook because I love technology and this computer looks elegant.  It would be fantastic to win.



From Laurie on January 24, 2012 :: 11:24 am

I am self-employed and not having a Lenovo Ultrabook has handicapped me from getting worthwhile assignments, or to market myself to employers who require reliability, speed and the very latest technology.


I could really use a

From Suzy Zawadzke on January 24, 2012 :: 11:24 am

I could really use a new computer to do my homework on!


Get More Work!

From LaRue Stanley on January 24, 2012 :: 11:24 am

I have a freelance business where I help people sort and catalog their receipts and bank/credit card statements in order to do their taxes.  I go to their homes and offices so I need a light, working laptop.  Mine is an older, heavier one and it would be great to have one this light and fast.


Nice giveaway

From Kim on January 24, 2012 :: 11:24 am

I would love to win the Lenovo Ultrabook giveaway so that I can give it to my children. I have a 7th and 3rd grader and they both get bombarded with homework.  My son is in advanced classes and has tons of homework and having this Ultrabook would help both of them. Thanks for reading:)


Could use a laptop because

From H Douglas on January 24, 2012 :: 11:24 am

Could use a laptop because my tablet, while useful, cannot do everything a laptop can


Why do I need a new Intel-powered Ultrabook?

From erwin susara on January 24, 2012 :: 11:24 am

For a lighter load on my back without sacrificing processing power!


Never Win

From bamccullough96 on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

I enter these types of contest all the time and have never won a thing..would like to win once, and it is something I can definitely use


I NEED a new laptop!

From Courtney on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

My current laptop isn’t even mine, it’s my sisters!  Mine died a couple months ago from old age - no worries, it went peacefully in its sleep mode!!


From Kathy D on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

I have three gandchildren and we are always fighting for time on the pc that we have.  It would be great for them or me to use and my pc is very old.  Plus there are so many educational apps for them to use that would be great.  My grandson has a speech problem and this computer would help him use apps for speech problem children.  I am retired and really don’t have the spare money to buy one at this time.


Would love to win

From Sally Kay on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

I would love to win the Ultrabook for the long life of the battery and quality of the product!
Thank you!


Need to win

From Kim Taylor on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

I want to start working from home and need a new laptop that I can depend on, that no one else will use and can be devoted to my online job.


From Maura on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

My Grandsons use my computer for homework. I also have family that we have to travel to see and the portability of this computer would be great to travel with.


I need a windows laptop for work

From Lee on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

I have a Mac at home but all work computers are pc - I could really use a windows based laptop to do my job!


Lenovo sweepstakes

From Cindy D-H on January 24, 2012 :: 11:25 am

I need one because I don’t have a laptop and my pc is a few years old and needs updating.  This would be a perfect solution because I can’t afford to buy a new one for quite a while.  I stay after work do anything i need on their computer.


Why I need a new Laptop

From BETTY SIEMATKOWSKI on January 24, 2012 :: 11:26 am

I am a residential appraiser and since the economy or the real estate market decline, the soft ware i need to do an appraisal is requiring more and more space due to the requirements by FANNIE MAE and other lenders.  Each of my reports contain over 30 pics and sometimes 50 plus.  I just bought a computer less than a year ago and I didnot buy the least expensive and I am already running out of power and space.


My wife has a laptop

From Wayne Dougherty on January 24, 2012 :: 11:26 am

My wife has a laptop and my son has one too. I do not ! I need one, hopefully you can help me get there. Thanks


Oh my I could use it!

From Lisa Roberts on January 24, 2012 :: 11:26 am

I could use the Intel-Powered Lenvo to set up my new blog. I’m sure it wouldn’t have keys that stick and a big scratch on the screen that my current cheapo laptop has. Couldn’t believe that I had it a year and the case started falling apart. It isn’t so cute with duct tape holding it together….


From Kathy on January 24, 2012 :: 11:26 am

My current laptop acts older than I am and is living on life support.  Since I’m traveling more a new lightweight laptop would be perfect!


From john knight on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

I need a new lenovo because my families current computer is over 8 years old & made from the parts of over 4 diff machines.Good luck to all & please & thanks


I need a new lenovo

From Glenna on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

I need a new laptop because mine is taking longer to start up in the morning than me!



From Kay on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

I need this so I can do my work!
