Will the MBA suffice my needs or should I go MBP?

I been looking to get a MBA for graphic design and photography on the go but I'm not sure if its the right one to get. The one I been looking at is:

13.3 MBA
1.8ghz i5
8gb
128gb or 256gb still undecided

I plan on installing CS5.5 maybe CS6 in the future and Lightroom 4, I usually have multiple files open. As far as the processor I'm not sure if the 1.8 processor would be enough. Should I go for the 2.0ghz i7? I was told the i7 uses more battery than the i5. Is it true?

Also as far as the hard drive goes I have a 1tb, usb 3 portable one so I'm not sure if I should still get the 256gb one as I shoot with RAW files.

I want to be able to take the notebook to college and on trips to work on files or photos on my free time.

Am I good with the MBA or should I start looking at the new rMBP or cMBP series?

Thanks
