Need new MB. MBP or Air?

My MBP from 2010 was stolen yesterday and I need to buy a new one soon. I don't really care if it is the 13" air or 13" MBP as I don't really use the computer for anything advanced. Which one should I buy? I can't really wait for the new releases (I heard both are in Q3) but as the MB air is expected to only get a minor upgrade whereas the MPB will get a major one, maybe its better to by the MB air...?

Please give me some feedback on what you would have done. Another possibility is for me to use an old hp computer until April but as the MBs aren't supposed to updated before that I guess that is just stupid

Second that. I wouldn't lug or pay the extra $ for the Pro if I didn't need it. Compare prices at B&H, Best Buy and Amazon, sometimes you can beat the refurb store.
