I don't think it factors at all. Students will primarily going for the small (I doubt any group actually carries around a laptop more) and inexpensive. So the 13" MPB and MBA would be the most popular MB's with students by far, and of those the less expensive MBA would be the most popular.There is only one ARM MBP, the low end model at the smallest size. You don't think they want ARM Macs across the whole laptop line for back to school?
The real target audience for higher end models will be working professionals. It would have been nice to show them to developers at WWDC, but really there is no critical date for such machines. They will be ready, when they are ready.
