The extra weight of the Surface Pro may also help here; it's very well balanced and doesn't tip as easily as the Surface RT (in particular it's less prone to tipping forward when you move your legs).

Benchmarks Real world tests of Surface Pro vs IdeaPad Yoga

GLBenchmark 2.7 3D graphics performance

Surface Pro
48.8 fps
IdeaPad Yoga
43.9 fps
The Surface Pro 2 may benefit from Intel's Haswell processor, but we would still like to see a model with dedicated GPU, rather than shared.

GLBenchmark 2.5 3D graphics performance

Surface Pro
107.5 fps
IdeaPad Yoga
85.2 fps
On our rundown tests, which keep the screen on and the CPU and GPU running continually, with Wi-Fi and background tasks running, we could run the battery down in a little less than three hours.
