I want to buy a new MacBook Air the £999 model has 256GB SSD storage while the £1249 model has 512GB SSD storage. I do pretty much all my uni work on google docs as things always save and it is easier to browse in some aspects so I am not sure whether the more expensive model is worth it? Any advice?

256GB of inbuilt storage is enough for most people mainly just storing documents, especially if you already use cloud storage solutions like Google Docs as part of your workflow. Charging £250 for one extra GPU core and 256GB of storage is also a ludicrous price gouge. Although I would recommend spending £50 on a 1TB-2TB external hard drive for a secondary form of backup, as well as a place to store large media files like movies if you ever decided to start collecting them.
