    The MBA 13" screen is higher resolution which means Xcode may be slightly better as more elements can fit on the screen, the MBP has a better processor (at this exact moment) but the MBA has an SSD. The difference is negligible, it all comes down to preference and requirements, i.e. need of a superdrive

    With regard to superdrive....

    Is it possible to share out the iMac's superdrive, and access via LAN/wi-fi, as needed? I know it would be slow, but for the odd occasion, doable?

    Yup, it's called DVD sharing. If you go to the MBA's spec's page, they mention it.
