Lenovo Ultrabook Giveaway from Intel!

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.

Why I need an Intel-powered Ultrabook

From Diane on January 24, 2012 :: 11:15 am

I lost my job, like so many others, and was using a laptop supplied by my employer.  I didn’t bother to upgrade my own personal computer for years because I counted on my work laptop.  I need a new laptop so I can access lots of jobs and submit my resume for consideration without it taking me hours to just get through one application.

The other reason, which is just as important to me, is that I’ve never won anything in my life and would love to know what that feels like. smile

From Alice on January 24, 2012 :: 11:17 am

I have never had a laptop and now that I am retired I sure could use one.  I do volunteer work for a community organization and a laptop would definitely work well for updating their website when I am away from home.

An IdeaPad for My Organizing Blog

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

In 2011, I published a book on getting organized and began blogging as an accompaniment to the book. I haven’t kept up with my blog anywhere near as often as I’d like because our desktop computer in the kitchen is one I share with the kids (homework takes priority), and it’s obviously wired down to that one spot. I’m on the go too much to find the desktop at all convenient, but my iPhone is useless for blogging. Winning an ultralight will help me reach and support my readers with more great organizing ideas that I can share no matter where I am.

From Jackie Koski on January 24, 2012 :: 11:20 am

I would love an Ultrabook so I could give my laptop to my son, who is in college.  He is always on my laptop when he is home.  I have had to have it repaired twice since September.  Winning this new Ultrabook would give me peace of mind and lower computer repair bills.

New laptop

From Sally on January 24, 2012 :: 11:21 am

I do a lot of traveling and my computer needs to go with me.  Having a new, faster computer would be a boon to my business.  Since it is lighter, that would also be a plus. Thank you for this chance!

Lenovo laptop

From Debra Wright on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

The Lenovo laptop would be a great one to own and would be better than the one I have. Then I could give mine to my 12 year old niece to use as she does not have one and does not get much computer time on her dads computer.

From Yolanda Cintron on January 24, 2012 :: 11:22 am

It is always good to have a back-up computer - just in case. Plus being out of a full-time job would be “sweet” to win something such as a 13” Lenovo┬« IdeaPad┬« U300s.

From Savannah Butler on January 24, 2012 :: 11:23 am

I need this ultrabook for several reasons. Firstly, my ex boyfriend broke my laptop by smashing it with a bookcase and then crashed my desktop with viruses. So at the moment, I don’t have a working computer, just my smartphone. Secondly all of my techie friends carry their sweet macbooks everywhere with them and I get teased all the time for not having a computer, so getting an ultrabook would be perfect to carry around! smile

Why I need Lenovo Ultravook

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

The laptop that I have is at least 6 years old and is so slow it’s basically unusable. My husband has been off work since October and having a laptop would enable him to go to the library or somewhere that has free wifi and then apply for jobs.

Good Girlfriend

From Rebecca Smith on January 24, 2012 :: 11:30 am

My boyfriend is the cheapest man alive, but always spends a little extra to make sure I have the best.  Unfortunately, his laptop is in less than ideal condition - it is currently glued open with Monster glue because the hinge is broken and the battery is fried so he can only use it when it’s plugged into the wall outlet.  Such a sad case!  I would love to buy him a brand new one with all the bells and whistles, but have been hit hard by the economy recently and am just barely scraping by myself.  If I won a computer to give to him for Valentine’s Day, I’d be the best girlfriend EVER!  LOL.  Good luck to all.  Techlicious is the best!

College Student without a car

From Natascha on January 24, 2012 :: 11:41 am

I would love to have a laptop that’s actually light enough to carry around with me for school. I don’t have a car so that means I generally have to do a lot of walking, and combine with everything else I have to carry, the five pounds from my laptop kills my bac.
