The last post hit the mark it all depends for what your using it for. You just need a laptop for regular web-browsing or e-mail the air would be a laptop to consider. But if you plan to do some gaming or programs that use more of the machines resources the pro would be the way to go. Also if you are going to carry your laptop around and you just need it for regular use the air would be a good choice because it's light. That's why in the end of the day you need to do a lot of research to know which laptop will work best for you, and as a pro owner I would highly recommended it.

Yes. It can hold much more memory both ram and hard drive. It has more ports, and a dvd slot. But if you wan to go light choose air.

In my opinion and I did look at both prior to purchasing and the answer is 1000% yes. I had a hard drive slot which the air book doesn't. The mac book pro is a little heavier but not much. It's an i7 which is incredible with a camera and I love it. Minimal ports on the Mac book air. The additonal cost is worth it.

If you are using Adobe like Photoshop or Illustrator, especially complex and 3D work like Autodesk Maya, you are much better off with a Lenovo Y510P. This PC is much cheaper and is at the top MacBook Pro 15" specs, except it has no Retina Display-like resolution. This very high resolution actually drains battery, RAM, and graphics memory, so for basic tasks, you are simply buying two Windows PCs for one here. Do not bother.
