How does the performance of the current 2011-2012 Macbook Air compare to my 2009 white Macbook?

I have a 2009 white Macbook. 213ghz Core 2 Duo, 6g RAM. I use CS5. I build websites, and so files are almost always smaller than 50-100 MB. I typically have iTunes open simultaneously running AIFF (large) files. (iTunes music is stored on external HD.) I also have OpenOffice open, sometimes with a large Doc or two file(s) open.

My processing speeds are "eh", sometimes to the point of becoming maddening.

I want a Macbook Air rather than a Macbook Pro, primarily for the weight and the lack of an edge at the base of the keyboard. Is an Air up to my needs?
