What to buy...MBA or MBP --- Help!

I am passing my MBA (mid-2011) to my wife......4gb, 128 flash.

She only does web browsing and facebook....with the occasional MS Word or very minor Excell stuff.

So, what is the best way to go:

1. MBA, 8gb, 512ssd, 2.0 i7........ $2199

or

2. MBP 13, 8gb, 750hdd........ $1499 replace hdd with ssd for $180 (256gb)



So, I want to order today, but I can't decide which way to go.

Would the MBP with the replaced drive to ssd have as long a batt life as the MBA?

I know I could save some money on the MBA with a 256ssd, but since you are stuck with what you get, I would not want to get less than the most.

Are there advantages to the MBP over the MBA. Looks like you get more for less money with the MBP.....processor, RAM........is that correct?

HELP!!!
