I prefer the MacBook Air for my use.
I like the thin size and reliability.
If I need a CD/DVD drive I just plug in my external.
What do you plan on using your laptop for??
The answer to that will normally determine which would be best for you.

I'm spending your money but I would get the newest model you can and maybe get the 13" model unless you really need the extra real estate of the 15". But remember you can always use an external monitor for the extra size. For what I do with photos I need the power of an upper end MacBook Pro but if it weren't for the type of photo (HDR) work I do I could make out with a lot less HP.
I've thought about just putting a Mini in the bus and for most folks I think even that would be overkill. For almost everything other than doing taxes and processing photos the iPad gets the most work from us. But like Greg said, what are you gonna be doing with it?

Back when, never thought a laptop would ever replace desk top, but they have for lots of us. And in the motorhome use, it just goes with us. Pay bills, process photos, e mail, fax, just like home. All my work is loaded on my laptop, easy to access. Our ipad and iphone is a geat tool, but in no way would I be with our my laptop. When I change computers every few years, it take 6 months to get everything back the way I want it,
I want a 15" screen, great resolutions, and a fast processor.
If you are actually going to use it, a cheap computer is a waste of money.
