best computer for school and hobbies?

I am in high school and i also go to a technical school for Art and Design. We use Macs everyday at my tech school, and i like to do some of my work on my laptop at home sometimes. My current laptop is very old and is starting to stop working a lot of the time. Also, i am very into photography and I use Photoshop CS5 a lot, but lately my computer has been crashing while using it. It just cant take it anymore. i also would be starting to use it for other regular high school classes for notes and things.

My question is: Which Mac would be best for me?
i have been looking at the new 11 inch Mac book air but also, thinking about after all the expenses, just saving up and going for the Mac book pro. Which do you think would be better for me? I am trying to go for the cheapest deal for the best performance.

    I'm at High School and have a 13" Macbook Pro, i've found its overall got better performance than the Macbook Air (from using a friends) and also comes with a larger HDD. I would say for you personally, the 15" Macbook Pro, its got a reasonable screen size for editing photos and will run CS5 no problems, (from experience with my 13")
