Macbook pro if you want to get more juice out of the cpu.
The pro model has a higher base clock speed which results in better cpu scores.
You can check the geekbench results for both of those model.

Not much of a difference though? Just a margin of a few hundred. Is it worth spending a few hundred more for it?

honestly, i don't think CPU speed would make much difference in a web development setup. By the way, Beaware of the keyboard issues.
