Thank god for new laptops. I was at my wits end & ready to freak out x 100 with my current laptop, when amazingly, my UPS guy showed up with a surprise.

A new Lenovo IdeaPad U300s. FABULUSH!

Packaged in a surprisingly sleek box ( the slimmest I’ve seen thus far), and super light weight (under 3 lbs.), the graphite colored Lenovo U300s has a 13.3-inch HD display &  holds a battery life of approx five hrs with a full media run (movie & music streams) and…never heated up.  Thanks to the Intel® Advanced Cooling Technology, the Lenovo keeps cool (espesh if you have it on your lap). My previous laptop would get hot after an hour. #notfabulush.

Although it comes without an SD slot, it does have a fantastic trackpad and Intel Wireless Display (which lets you show your display on a TV or monitor), great for those who are online vid enthusiasts (like myself).

For me, the most important factors are speed and weight. The Lenovo IdeaPad (starting at $1,199), is excellent for those who want to carry a light weight, super fast laptop (boots up for me in less than 10 seconds). A perf machine for us busy city-girl fashionistas whose days are filled with meetings, lunches and work dinners. I can easily carry this Lenovo in my tote and go from downtown to uptown to Midtown without feeling weighed down.

And, it comes with one of my new fav apps, Easy Notes, a sticky note program that you use your fingers to swipe through each of the color coded notes. Great for me, since I have them divided into separate categories for MG, Socialista NY & Manhattan Social Media (my new company).

Dahlings, have you upgraded your laptop yet?
