    Default Macbook Pro with Retina or Macbook Air?

    I am supposed to get a new laptop for Christmas, and I was wondering whether I should get the Air or the Pro with Retina Display.
    I am a high school student and would use the Mac for general browsing, watching movies, YouTube, some social media, some photo and video editing, and playing some games such as FPS ones. I don't know why, but I've always had this 'attachment' to the Pro, and I am thinking about getting the Pro over the Air as the dimensions are close. Would anyone be able to tell me what the benefits of each of the Macs are?

    For those uses, the only difference that may make a difference to you is the retina screen or not. Either the Pro or Air is perfectly capable of performing he tasks you listed.
