Can't decide between a 13'' summer 2011 Macbook Air or a new 13'' Macbook Pro.

All I use the computer for is web surfing / paper writing. Is one better than the other for this? I know the SSD on the air is smaller, will this impact surfing performance.

Also care about overheating, but currently use SMC on my Pro so I'm hoping I could use it on the new one.

Don't care about price (or the need to purchase a super drive for the Air).

Any advice/input would to help with this decision would be greatly appreciated!!

I agree, the air will be a very well suited machine. I love mine!
