    Everyone loves the Air (including me) because it's small and as you say, attractive. However, on the practical side, the 13" MacBook Pro is a better purchase since it's upgradeable, can hold more memory, has an optical drive which you can replace with a SSD, a larger hard drive and so on.

    I would buy the MBP, but it's your choice and money.

    To add to chscag's excellent advice, I would also note that either notebook has weak, integrated graphics, which are definitely not well suited for gaming right out of the box. 3-4 years out? I would say that most contemporary, high-end games are off the table even brand new.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Go for the MB Air
    I have an 11" 2011 MB Air and love it for it's size, weight, portability, battery life. I did goose it up when I ordered it with max sized SSD, fastest processor, and max memory knowing that it would not be upgradable in the future.

    I also have a 15" 2010 MB Pro which I primarily use as a desk top with the Apple 27" monitor. Heavy.

    The MB Air will do all you need, do it well, and do it quickly.
