MacBook Pro 13 or MacBook Air 11

My lovely 2010 MacBook Pro 13 was recently stolen. It breaks my heart but I need a new one. I'm a journalist and need a laptop fast, mostly for writing and research. I also save a lot of pictures and music on my laptop. I just don't know if it's worth the extra money to get the Pro, seeing as I just use it for writing, internet, pictures, music, and Skype.
I guess the DVD/CD port is handy but other than that I can't see why I need a Pro. In saying that I really loved my laptop and would be devastated if the Air didn't give me what I was used to with the Pro.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
