- RAM and harddrive:
As far as I've read now from various Youtube reviews, the 8GB Macbooks are quite sufficient for my application purposes (don't currently do any video editing). Would you agree with that? And rather 512 GB hard drive, or is the smaller variant enough?

The M1-based MacBook Airs do not have hard drives.  They have SSDs.  If you custom-order a machine from the Apple Store site, you can choose from 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB SSDs.

To estimate how much storage you'll need, take a look at how much you are using on your current system, and ask yourself what portion of that you'd be comfortable in keeping on external drives.
