Macbook Pro vs. Macbook air?

I'm a student and was wondering what would be better for essays web browsing and light video editing, 13 inch macbook pro or 13 inch macbook air. I heard that a new, thinner macbook pro 13 inch is coming out in may/june 2012. Thanks.

    The only difference between a MBP and MBA is the sheer size and weight. All the software and specs between the MBP/MBA are the same. I’m currently using a MBP 13 inch and it works marvelously for the jobs you mentioned so it all depends if you want to carry something heavy or light.

    Both are great notebooks.depends on your needs. In general, if size and weight are most important = Air. If expansion (and an internal optical drive) is more important = Pro. If expansion and performance are important, consider a 15″ or 17″ =Pro.

    Pro. The Air was built to be light and thin: that’s its whole gimmick, it wasn’t designed for high performance or handling heavy duty tasks like video editing.

    Not a mac person, but if I had to choose, I’d pick macbook pro. It all depends if you do a lot of intensive cpu activites (if you do, pick pro). If you do more essays and web browsing, go with air.
