Planning on getting the 13'' 256GB model.

1.3GHz or 1.7GHz
4GB RAM or 8GB RAM

If i had to choose between processor or RAM which one?

RAM is more important. CPU will give you a slight bump. Don't they teach you this as a comp sci major?

Cool. You'll enjoy the Macbook. Besides, you'll need the ram so you can have a Windows environment to run IDEs like Visual Studio .NET.
It is pretty unlikely he'll ever need a Windows environment for school, let alone Visual Studio.

For CS you could do without both but if you have the money to burn, ram is more likely to be helpful.

depends on how good of a student you are. if you are just going to study cs "one day" and haven't done any calculus (or ap credits) you won't be coding anytime soon.
