13 November 2011, Singapore – What do New York, Fashion and Lenovo have in common?   Well that was why I was in New York on September 8th to investigate.

[We’re giving away ONE Lenovo IdeaPad U300s bundle in the month of December 2011 to usher in the new year.  Click here for details]

It was the annual one-night-only fashion event dubbed Fashion Night Out.  As part of the New York Fashion week, Fashion Night Out is a night of glamour to meet the stars, celebrities and other famous personalities in the fashion spots of downtown New York.

Flying in 18 hours from Singapore after almost 11 hours of flight delay, I finally touched down at Newark Airport in New Jersey and made my way to Saks Fifth Avenue to check out the Lenovo Lounge.

Lenovo was launching the new category of ultra-slim and ultra-responsive luxury IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook.

The powerful and productive yet stylish U300s Ultrabook is created with the Intel Core i7 processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.  The Intel Core i7 targets high end consumer laptop computers and is advertised as five stars in the Intel Processor Rating.

The IdeaPad U300s is described as “the perfect luxury accessory this season, liberating fashionistas on the go to combine productivity and entertainment in one stylish device” by Lee Chown How, Lenovo Singapore’s Country General Manager.

Groovy!!    This laptop is not only fast, it is also only 14.9mm thin and created from a single-piece aluminium shell weighing 1.32 kg with its four cell battery. You can also enjoy 8 hours of productive usage or 30 days on standby.

Memories of New York

Albeit spending only 2 days in New York, it was still a memorable visit back to America since I graduated from Oregon in 1994. You can imagine the euphoria as I cleared immigration and cabbed my way from the airport to the hotel! Scenes of Sex & The City flashed in my mind.  I was mesmerized by the tall skyscrapers while stuck in traffic and the tight security because it was also the 10th year after the fateful September 11th terrorist attack of the Twin Towers.

I managed to squeeze some time to take the Circle Line Sightseeing cruise with the other bloggers from other parts of the world.  We checked out the Statue of Liberty for the first time on the boat as well as the cityscape.

Managed to visit Best Buy to get the Eye-Fi card and StarBucks to get flavours of VIA that are not available in Singapore.

So what does New York, Fashion and Lenovo have in common?  It was the memorable experience and glamour and luxury of the three that remains deeply ingrained within me, if I could say “I left my heart in New York”.  More photos will be uploaded on to our Facebook Fan Page.
