Which Ultrabook? Dell XPS 12 vs Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

I'm having a hard time deciding which Ultrabook to get for university. The two I had my eyes on are
Dell XPS 12 (1900x1020)
i5 4200U, 4GB ram, 128 SSD - 699.99
i7 4500U, 8GB ram, 256 SSD - 1299.99

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (3200x1800)
i5 4200U, 8GB ram, 256 SSD - 1279.99
i7 4500U, 4GB ram, 256 SSD - 1199.99
i7 4500U, 8GB ram, 512 SSD - 1499.99

I don't really game, I would like to have the option to play something like Dota 2 though.
Which one should I get and why? Or is there another candidate you would suggest?
I am looking for something under 4 pounds and at least 1080p resolution.

The ram is not upgradeable for both since its soldered into the motherboard.

  1. They are all pretty similar.

    i7 4500U, 8GB ram, 256 SSD - 1299.99

    That one is the most balanced. Although if I were you I would get the i5 4200U, 4GB ram, 128 SSD - 699.99 and just add another 4GB of RAM.
  2. Lenovo is known for producing well-built, rugged systems. I think the Lenovo would simply survive longer than the Dell.
