Default MacbookPro vs. MacbookAir

So I'm looking into buying a laptop for college. I want something fast, reliable and with a lot of storage (preferably 500GB). I recently talked to a Apple employee and he suggested waiting till mid-June for the new Macbook Air release. He suggested a MBA because of it's mobility and structural differences.

"Being a student, you will take your laptop with you a lot. Because the MBA has no moving parts inside, other than the fan (no disk drive), it is much less devastating if dropped or knocked around," he told me. "All Apple laptops will soon be moving over to this "solid state" with no moving parts." I agree with this, however if this is the only benefit over a MBP, I would rather go with the 13" 2.7Ghz MBP.

So, what do you all think? What should I do? And if I were to get the MBP, should I still wait a while, or since the 2011 models have already been released, buy now?

I love my Mac.

But Borat is correct. Brace yourself, prepare for Windows impact.
