HD size - none of us can answer that for you.
I have around 12 TB of total storage here, everything with 2 and in some cases 3 backups - so, about 8-9 TB of it used
When I checked my wife's computer yesterday, she has used only 45 GB space on her computer - that's her total over a 6 year period.

How much space is used on your current computer - that's your best indicator.

And if you have not budgeted for an external drive to backup your data at the same time as you buy the new computer - imho - get that before you pay for any upgrades.

And... when you buy an external drive for additional primary storage - make sure you buy 2 so you can back that one up.

Aside from all that - you can't upgrade the CPU later on. At least OWC (maybe others, have not looked) does make upgrades for the flash storage in the MBAa

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
