Head-To-Head: Lenovo Yoga 920 Vs. Microsoft Surface Pro

Kyle Alspach

Price

As mentioned, Microsoft doesn't automatically include the Type Cover with the Surface Pro tablet, so that needs to be factored in when comparing the Surface Pro with the Yoga 920 on price. Microsoft offers two Type Covers for the Surface Pro — a basic Type Cover for $130, and a Signature edition for $160 that comes with Alcantara fabric around the keys and touchpad.

Assuming you want the Signature Type Cover, the Surface Pro starts out at $959. However, that model only gets you 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. A better model to compare with the Yoga 920 is the 8-GB/256-GB configuration of the Surface Pro, which costs $1,459 with the Signature Type Cover. That's nearly $200 more than the entry-level Yoga 920 (with the same amount of RAM and storage), which currently starts at $1,264 on Lenovo.com for the FHD model. Those prices will get you the eighth-gen Core i5 for the Yoga 920, compared with the seventh-gen Core i7 of the Surface Pro. But the Surface Pro at that price has the higher-res display over the entry-level Yoga 920.

To get the UHD display and Core i7 on the Yoga 920 (with 16 GB RAM), you'll pay $1,800 on Lenovo.com. A Core i7 model of the Surface Pro, with 16 GB of RAM and the Signature Type Cover, starts at $2,359. So if price is a chief consideration — over things such as detachability and maximum portability — the Yoga 920 may be the better choice for you.
