Why is people suddenly assuming an Intel Mac is not a good buy? I am not referring only to your comment but to several I have read in this forum.

Why do people always twist other peoples words... exactly where in my post do I say that an Intel Mac is not a good buy?

First: I think an intel mac is a good buy, especially at that price, I never said it wasn't.
Second: I am on record in other threads defending buying intel macs now IF you have a need for bootcamp, the virtualizations or for software you don't think will make the transition.
Third: My post above clearly states that the sale is 'making it hard for me not to buy one now'. Why would I do that if I didn't think it was a good deal?

For the record: I planned on buying a 16" recently when my mbp came back from its 3rd butterfly keyboard replacement but then the ARM announcement happened and it was made clear the transition would be happening faster than I thought it would so I decided to try and make my 2017 last until I can buy an ARM.

I would even say an Intel Mac is a better option for professionals, specially Engineers and people in computational fields.

I am excited to see what the Arm Macs can bring in terms of battery life, efficiency and cross-compatibility with iOS, but I don’t think they will mop the floor with existing machines. Latest reading suggest they won’t even have dedicated graphics cards, all the processing power will come from a single SoC.

Those that buy the first Apple Silicon-based Macs will be providing beta testing services for Apple. It will be a year (or two) of working out bugs and getting features and stability to a level that Intel macOS has. So if anyone thinks their new 1st gen Apple Silicon MBP will be a solid machine, I have a bridge to sell you! I'd stick with intel-based for now and let others do the beta testing on their own dimes.

My photo library is 5TB and growing. My music library is around 400GB, not including a concert archive that's about 800GB. And I just discovered youtube-dl, so my concert/video archive is starting to grow. And work-related project/document storage only keeps growing.

Some of us have been doing this stuff for a long time.

Right now the main problem is backing all that stuff up. Photos are backed up on amazon photos, but a lot of the other stuff is all backed up locally.

Now that I think about it I could probably use DropBox to back up a bunch of stuff. Hmmm.

Wow ok, so it's insanely small for you but not for the average person.

Just curious, how many photos approx. would 5TB be, over 100k ?
