Can ask you guys for advise... currently my Macbook has about 60gb left unused. I think 30 gb is iOS backup files. if I delete the iOS backup files, should have around 80-90 gb left.

I intend to start playing around with Final cut pro take videos etc...

Based on my usage , is 256 gb enough?

cos I just got the 512gb MBA and realised that's a lot of storage space left..

What do you advise?

I do have a samsung T5 (1TB) that I just bought on 11.11 sale, though.
Is enough. Store the video files on the t5. If it is a small project, you can copy the videos to the mac to edit, then move the project and files to the t5 when project complete.

You can actually work on your Final Cut Pro file directly on T5. I find no loss in performance.

I reckon you may have to order online and wait. I am guessing the shop will stock standard config units.

Seems like 256 gb will be enough for you, though I would still prefer to get enough storage to handle all my files on the device. I donít like having to rely on external storage to swap files around as it kinda defeats the portability aspect of a laptop.

I see apple online indicate pickup not avail for m1 Mac mini.

Any chance I could actually pick one up if I walk in to Orchard/MBS store?
