Exclamation And then there were 2: Need to hear from someone who chose MBA > Zenbook Prime please

I have a 4 year old asus eee netbook (single core atom processor! ) that is on its last legs and needs to be replaced.

I've narrowed my choices down to 2 different options:
1) 13 inch macbook air (4gb ram, 128ssd, i5)
2) 1080p zenbook prime (4gb ram, 128 ssd, i5)

I am sure this decision has come up before for some members here and I'm not so much looking for someone to say to me "well whats better for you?" since both machines could work for me. I would really like to hear your opinions on why you chose the macbook air over the zenbook prime and its 1080p IPS display besides just the obvious "well it runs OSX instead of Windows"

Thank you so much for your help. It's a big money decision for me as I'm a student and could really use your expertise.
