I am deciding between a mac book air with 256GB flash storage or a mac book pro with 500GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm. Which MacBook is right for me?

I think storage is the most important thing to me. I'm deciding between these two computers:

1.
Refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Air 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
Originally released June 2012
13.3-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display, 1440-by-900 resolution
4GB memory
256GB flash storage
720p FaceTime HD camera
Intel HD Graphics 4000

2.
Refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.5GHz Dual-core Intel i5
Originally released June 2012
13.3-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display, 1280-by-800 resolution
4GB (2 x 2GB) of 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM
500GB Serial ATA @ 5400 rpm
8x double-layer SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
Intel HD Graphics 4000

All I do on my computer is watch movies, surf the net, do very minimum word processing, store photos, maybe very very amateur photo editing and download tv shows, although I usually delete things when I am through with them. I had a 2009 mac book pro before and loved it. Did everything I needed, just ran its course. I'm not sure the flash storage is so exciting to warrant passing up a similar price deal on a 500GB Seerial ATA hard drive. Want to hear what other people think?

Mac
