13 air or 13 pro retina (certain specifications and needs)

Hi, I want to buy a macbook, and I am not sure whether to buy rmbp 13 or air.
my use will be web browsing, word documents/powerpoint, downloading lectures from the internet, iTunes library, as well as a few other apps.
I will either buy 8gb ram, 256 gb ssd air.
or 8 gb ram 128 gb ssd pro.
I want the processor to be fast enough to last 3-4 years, without being slow (in 2-3 years). So is the air processor good now and future wise? Or should I go for the smaller ssd, but better processor in the rmbp 13. Before u say get 15 retina, I am not considering the 15 inch retina at all

Judging form your use, I'd say the Air would be a good bet for you. It will easily do what you require of it, and I'm still happily using my 15 month old 17 Ultimate for even more intensive stuff...
..That's All Folks
