RAM and storage for editing 6k

Hello,

I want to buy the BMPCC 6k and the new MacBook Pro.

I'm not sure about the RAM and storage.

Are 32GB RAM enough to edit 6k? Or should I take 64GB?
Is it better to have the project files and footage on an external drive like the Samsung T5?
I think about taking a 2 TB SSD in the MacBook Pro, it's much faster but can you recognize the difference while editing?

Thanks :)

If we are talking BRAW here and editing in a 4K/UHD timeline, 32 GB is plenty as long as you don't make complex work in Fusion.

Your bottleneck will not be SSD speed, but the CPU and GPU.
