2013 Macbook air or macbook pro? going into my junior year of high school, looking to keep through college

Im looking into buying a new laptop and now that the 2013 MBA model has been released i feel like the playing field between the MBA and MBP has been leveled. My main uses for this laptop would be Microsoft word (school assignments), music playback/storage, internet surfing, ichat, and occasionally watching movies/tv shows. I'm willing to spend $1,500 and could be persuaded to pay a little more depending on if the extra money would be worth it. id like to keep this laptop through college.

Mac
