Based on your usecase, the MBA is probably a better (and cheaper) fit since nothing you are doing is going to require a ton of CPU power..
Additionally with the longer battery life of the MBA, you can go a full day at school without needing to charge..
You might want to look into a portable external storage to keep all of your documents though as opposed to filling up the onboard storage..
If you don't want to lug around an external HD, then you can use the SDXC slot and find the biggest SD card you afford and use that for storage..
