I need help deciding whether to get a 15" Macbook Pro or a 13" inch MacBook Air. For the past five years i have had my faithful iMac, but because it only has a Core Duo, it won't support Lion and I... feel afraid of obsolescence

About me: 95% of the time I just use my computer for internet browsing, i.e. Facebook, Reddit, and Google Docs. I understand that the Air would be fine for this type of usage. However, I occasionally do heavy-duty work with apps like Photoshop and After-Effects, and I feel like the Pro would be better suited for that sort of work. However I really like the form factor and portability of the Air, and with updates coming soon I think it might be more suited for heavy-duty work

If anyone has any experience with both models, it would be great if you could share your experiences with both.

Thanks!

I would get the 15" MBP so you can perform those power hungry applications.
