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.

New laptop

From Richard cone jr on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

Need a new because old one is broken and one for work


It's about time I get a chance to be "cutting-edge"!

From Mary Mann on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

It seems I am always running several generations behind in technology! It would be nice to actually have the ability to do the things everyone is always talking about!


Why I need an Ultrabook

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

My current computer is an eight-year-old Dell desktop that’s barely on its last foot, let alone last leg. It takes over 5 minutes to log onto the Internet. I need a replacement badly!


I ♥ Lenovo

From Sandra Podesta on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

After so many happy years together, why did I leave you for HP?  Now is my chance to correct this terrible mistake…please give me another chance!


daughters dreams

From Dawn C on January 24, 2012 :: 11:27 am

My daughter really needs this, shes been on the computer since she was three. This would be her first one!


Want vs. Need...Definitely a NEED

From Ana Reano on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

Since the moment I bought my Acer in 2006 it always gave me headache. Slowness, freezing, viruses etc. Until finally it just refused to turn on and seems to have burned out! No bringing it back to life, have had at least 3 computer techies take a look and its for sure a gonner. My family computer was also ancient so as a gift I bought a new family PC, mainly for my parents. So do not have the money to spend for myself. I run the Marketing department at work so I am always working on something. Thus I NEED a portable laptop that will seamlessly let me take my work from the office to home.


From Deirdre Tolson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

My computer is old and it would be fantastic to have a new one and not have to wait for everything to load on this one. It would also be awesome to have a computer that would go where I go.


Old computer

From Suzy Zawadzke on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

I could really use a new computer to share with my daughter.



From karen on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

Well, need is relative, but I do want a new laptop and it sounds like a great one for myself and my kids.


From paul on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

my laptop is only 1.5 years old, but it’s already failing.  i need a Lenovo to replace it!!


From Kondratowitch on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

If you only knew how much I need this laptop but cannot afford it, you would just give it to me as a gift!


I need a new laptop

From Laura W on January 24, 2012 :: 11:28 am

I need a new laptop cause this one keeps making a sound like it’s going to just die any moment. Also, my birthday is coming up, so that’d be nice. wink



From Joanne Erenberg on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

I need one because I am addicted to pinterest LOL!


Need it BAD!

From Yvonne on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

Great for my daughter to do her homework on - now we fight over the computer.


Lenvo on my wishlist

From Nancy Dandro on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

Why do I want a Lenovo Ultrapad?  That’s easy because of the battery life.  My current laptop has a one hour batter.  An 8 hour batter would be super.  Which reminds me of the Super Bowl that Tom Brady and the Patriots will win to honor Myra Kraft.


I really need a new computer

From Irene on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

I really need a new computer, and the Levono Ultrabook would be perfect.  My computer is old, slow, and in danger of dying.  Hope I win!


From Yovanne Chery on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

Because i dont have a fully function computer, Ive been using the one at work.


I want to WIN!

From Jackie Patterson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

I’d love love love to win a new laptop.  Mine is old & slow.  A new one would be great to work on everything, research, spreadsheets, blog, etc.  Hope I win!


My business is growing and I need to reach more parents

From Bill Corbett on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

I run a parent education company and I use my old Lenovo to run my business.  But because of the growth of my business, I need an ultrabook to take with me when I travel for training.  My business is growing and I’m now able to reach more parents.  My television show is now airing on over 80 public access channels and I need to TRAVEL LIGHT in my work.


Our Computer is a Dinosaur

From Liza Austin on January 24, 2012 :: 11:29 am

My husband needs it, my son needs it, our family needs it.



From Bobbi Capwell on January 24, 2012 :: 11:30 am

My daughter is opening a bakery and she really needs a new laptop. Her toshiba has seen better days and it is 6 years old!! Pick me and you can get all the baked goods you would ever want or need!!!


Screen went out on my

From Denise Anderson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:30 am

Screen went out on my current laptop and now I’m hooked up to a 80’s monitor. It’s not mobile anymore….  :(



From Bev on January 24, 2012 :: 11:30 am

I do not have a laptop, and could use one for taking with me to meet with clients. I work from home, having just started a new business. Have a netbook which is far too slow. Thanks

Would love to have a new Ultrabook

From Deanna Chavez on January 24, 2012 :: 11:31 am

I’d love to have a new Ultrabook to replace my old laptop which has about 2 hours of battery life left!


If you only knew how I need this laptop

From Kondratowitch on January 24, 2012 :: 11:31 am

If only you knew how much I needed this laptop but can not afford it, you would give it to me as a present.


Marketing Specialist

From Ruth Anderson on January 24, 2012 :: 11:32 am

Our home comouter died! We have had it in to Best Buy twice and also had the ISP out to our house, there seems to be no reslution. We would love a Lenovo Ultrabook!


From Brenda J Stratton on January 24, 2012 :: 11:32 am

Just because I think I need a new and faster laptop for the work I do on the computer.


Laptop Give Away

From Gina Vici on January 24, 2012 :: 11:32 am

My friend gave me a old unused laptop to force me to learn computers.  I lived in a cave for the last 19 years & was completely out of touch. Now, at 44 I’m about to go to college and desperately need an upgrade!!


From Shannon Barlow on January 24, 2012 :: 11:33 am

I need a new computer because the only way I can afford one is to win one or go through a place like Rent A Center, which is what I’m currently doing.  I am paying waaaayyyyyyy tooo much for this one but I can’t afford to just go out and buy one.  Trust me, if I could I would be more than happy to do it.  So, with that said, my finger (and toes) are all crossed and I am sooo hoping I win.  Thank you for the chance to win an awesome computer and being able to send this one back if I get lucky.  Good luck to all who enter.


My reason for needing a new computer

From Janet on January 24, 2012 :: 11:33 am

I need one because I don’t have a small, thin computer and I need one to carry to school!


My Wife and Our Laptop

From Steve on January 24, 2012 :: 11:33 am

I worked ahrd to get my wife to be computer literate.  Now, when we go on our monthly travels she wants to use our computer which I am using.  We need a second laptop.

this sounds like a great tool for keeping up with the demands of todays electronic life. I just want one!


From susan schmid on January 24, 2012 :: 11:34 am

The only access I have to a computer is at work.  It would be nice to be able to do some computing elsewhere, most likely at home on the couch!

Can you say CRASH!

From Brenda on January 24, 2012 :: 11:35 am

my computer is nine years old. It has no memory left. It crashes constantly. I currently have a desktop and think the portability of a laptop would be a nice feature. I hear Lenovo has great products and would like to take one for a ride!!!


I Need a Lenovo

From Jen Whisnant on January 24, 2012 :: 11:36 am

I need a Lenovo because mine is getting old and my daughter is in desperate need of a computer for schoolwork.  I guess we will flip for who gets the new and who gets the old!


College Mom

From Michelle on January 24, 2012 :: 11:36 am

My daughter is a senior in High School and will be leaving for college this fall.  I am a single mom and do not have the funds to get her a laptop that I’m sure she will need.  Thank you for the possibility… How wonderful this would be for her!!


Never owned one

From Doris on January 24, 2012 :: 11:36 am

Would love to have the Lenovo Ultrabook! I have never had one and it would be nice to have because my husband and I have to take turns using the one computer we have!


I need a new laptop

From Joan Jolman on January 24, 2012 :: 11:38 am

I need a new laptop for my son-n-law.  He is waiting to start school online untill he can afford a new laptop.  His is 8 years old and can not be upgraded to support the platforms he needs for school.

From Roger Marshall on January 24, 2012 :: 11:39 am

Have you ever seen a laptop skitter across an airport. Mine fell out of my bag, landed on a corner and the pieces went across the airport. Now I could use a new Lenovo.



From Lee on January 24, 2012 :: 11:40 am

I’m disabled. I have an old laptop with a broken lid and a dead battery. Still works though…barely. lol
