I think you mean hard disk space rather than memory (which is RAM).
It depends on the sizes of the files you mentioned but that lot would only take up a few GB. Video's take up a lot more space.

However, Windows itself and all the other programs, updates (which grow) and restore points are what really take up space. It is a little like "how long is a piece of string" but most computers nowadays come with at least 250GB anyway, although 100GB of that could be used up quite quickly by the system and various programs. Best to have too much than too little.

Hang on and see what others think too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
Any NEW laptop will more than exceed your needs, capacity wise. What you have listed would fit on an 80g drive, with the operating system, most are 320g - 500g in new laptops
