You make passing mention of your budget but if you want better advice, you should let us know just how much you are willing and able to spend. . . The info will significantly reduce the time folks waste thinking about your situation while proffering advice that you are either unable or unwilling to use.

Spending money on Macs that are at or nearing the end of their useful life doesn't make any sense. And this is coming from someone who tends to keep Macs for a longtime. . . I am not a Serial Upgrader!

IMO the base-model M1 Mac Mini is one of the best Mac values ever when it comes to performance and price at $649. (A refurb costs $589.) A RAM upgrade to 16GB adds $180 (a refurb price isn't currently available) but if the software you use most benefits from it the upgrade will turn the Mini into a pint-size powerhouse.

It's too early to make specific recommendations. . . But the Apple Silicon Macs are the future and I would not go with an Intel Mac unless there are compelling reasons to do so.
