Post Laptop Help

Hey,
I'm a student and I need to get a new laptop. I am thinking about getting a Macbook as it's pretty good (I think) and the school has special educational pricing for it. Only problem is, I can't choose between the Macbook Air 13 inch or the Macbook Pro 13 inch. Which on should I get? I want good battery life and a screen with good viewing angles. I don't mind the extra weight on the Macbook Pro but is it worth it? I need my laptop for editing (Photoshop, Flash, Aftereffects, etc.) and also some gaming time (Minecraft, NFS The Run). Also what configuration should I get them in? Thanks a lot!!!

P.S
Just wanted to share this with you.
My current laptop is an HP Probook 5220m (Which sucks. I was forced to buy this by the school). I broke the Screen, Motherboard, USB, Keyboard, Webcam, and the Charger. It's good that I have accidental warrentry which covered for my breaks and replaced them for me.

I have both of them, and mainly use air.
to use air, there's no problem doing general tasks (web, mail, videos), but playing 3D fps games, it gives off a lot of fever.

i think pro is good if you can buy, but air is not so bad.
