moderated Re: if you were getting a new computer.
I too would stick with SSD depending on your space needs 512 GB or 1 TB.
I would not put the files I value on an HD drive these days since the price of SSD has come down so far.
I believe there is now an I8 if not an I9 chip.
I have the I7 and it is great and all I need.
Make sure you have at least 3 USB ports.
A built-in SD card reader.
I don’t know if Windows is putting in USBC ports, but that would be nice since many things are going that way.

If I could get one right now, here's what I'd do.
I'd definitely get 16-32 GB of ram, because if you want the thing to last for 6-7 years, you just never know what's going to be needed that far down the road. I'd definitely go for an I7, although it doesn't have to be the fastest one out there, they're already fast.
I'd see if I could get a 1 TB SSd, and a 2-4 TB external drive. That should store everything you need, and then some. There's most likely no need for a secondary internal drive, if you can pull off a 1 TB SSD.
