    is 2TB overkill these days for SSD?

    for real?

    also do we really need more than 32GB RAM?

    Depends on use-case.

    If you built a huge machine that you were going to spin-up a bunch of vm's, not an issue. Or had some custom app with a big DB. Basically what AWS does when you spinup an EC2 instance, you can pick backend storage type of magnetic or ssd. If you have a huge database and need quick disk speed then SSDs are prime.

    Now... for your average home user I would say yes.

    Get a 256GB SSDx2 (one for OS, one for apps) then a large spinning disk for backup as they likely will last longer than an SSD for archival purposes.
