MacBook Pro has a cooling fan which helps keep the processor runs cooler and helps processing output. So if you know you're going to be running Final Cut Pro and other processor hogs, you really don't have a choice.

But if you're not a power user, the Air is just about perfect.
Linus Tech Tips just tested the batter between the Air and MBP and the MBP was significantly longer, I think 5-6 hours or something. Definitely makes the price difference better.
