One option to consider, if someone wants to store a lot of stuff, and not rely on the cloud, is a blue ray burner for a computer.
You can get them external, but if I were building a new one, I'd get one built in.
The single layer ones burn up to 25 GB per disk, and the dual layer burners can typically do 50 GB, and you can even get 100 GB disks for the dual layer burners.
Here's an article.

We are up to Gen 10 from Intel and they are solid CPU's for the money. I use
I5's myself. I7 or higher CPU's are for high end gaming and video editing. I
also prefer 16GB of RAM but 8 or 12 is plenty unless you do video or photo
editing. An SSD is a must and 256GB is fine for the OS and programs. Of course
big as you can afford is what I would suggest. I store all my media and personal
data on a second drive. 4TB is what I have now in 2 machines and 2TB in the
third. Onboard sound and video is more than enough unless of course you do video
or audio editing. Then a dedicated video and or audio card is recommended. USB
3.1 is a must And a couple of type C connections should be considered.
