The cpu upgrade from the i5 to i7 would be about 16% faster. If you're buying a MacBook Air...you would probably prefer as much portability as possible...and not have to constantly be "fooling around" with external hard drives & cables.
I would say that not having to constantly mess around with external HD's would be more beneficial than a 16% increase in performance. So I would go with the larger SSD.
p.s. Of course if you went with the i7 cpu...you also get the option to configure it with up to a 512gig SSD.
