13-inch MacBook Air vs. 15-inch MacBook Pro

Hi guys,

I'm in the market for a new laptop, and I'm prepared to buy my first Mac. The question is, however, whether I should go with a 13-inch MBA or 15-inch MBP. Obviously, the MBA has the advantage of better portability and SSD, but I will be using this laptop as my only computer, so the discrete graphics and quad-core processor of the MBP are appealing. I'm not really considering the 13-inch MBP b/c of its lower resolution and integrated graphics — might as well get a 13-inch Air instead.

Would appreciate your thoughts.
