The U300S is one of three just-announced laptops on this list that beautifully exemplify Intel's new "ultrabook" subcategory. It's incredibly thin at just .6 inches, ships with a state-of-the-art Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, and has a 256 GB Solid State Drive with quick-start technology for near-instant boot times and access to files. Unlike some of the other super slim laptops, the U300S doesn't have a design that makes it look prone to falling through cracks in the sidewalk. Instead, Lenovo gave it a sturdy, book-like design that's more MacBook Pro than MacBook Air. Like a MacBook, it also has a glass, oversized clickable trackpad.
