Macbook air 13' 2015 vs pro retina 13' 2014

Hello guys! I'm going to buy my first macbook and I have two options : 1) Macbook air 13' (early 2015) 8gb RAM ,i5 ,128gb SSD 2) Macbook pro retina 13' (mid-2014) 8gb ram ,i5 ,128gb SSD Macbook air has better ssd( almost twice time faster than pro ) ,better battery life , is thinner and lighter and it is the newest model. Macbook pro has better cpu and retina. But battery life is worse (3 hours less) ,is a little bit thicker and heavier. And it is from the 2014. I can't decide which option is better. Both are at the same price and both are brand new. Could you help me?

I will use my macbook to studying ,browse net , working on ms office ,adobe etc. I don't use difficult programms. I need portability and long battery life. I want computer for 4-5 years at least (so which is better?)

What about failures in both models?
