Which is better for Art School? The 2012 Macbook Air, or the new 2012 Macbook Pro with Retina display??

I'm going to be a freshman in college this fall, and I've decided i'm going with apple for my laptop, however I've waited until apple came out with the new macbooks. Now the question is which macbook is better suited for art school?( In art school I will be working with many different mediums like photoshop, etc. ) So I'm assuming processing power and graphics are probably the most important?
The Laptops i'm considering are....

2012 Macbook Air 13inch 256GB .$1,499
2012 Macbook Pro Retina Display 15inch. 256GB $1,999
2012 Macbook Pro 15inch 750GB $1,999

Also the prices here are education pricing already.
Thanks!

    You should go with the 2012 Macbook Pro Retina Display 15inch. 256GB ($1,999). The retina display will be great for art school and its all new processor will work great with photoshop.
