4TB SSD are not uncommon on enterprise systems these days
A number of factors can effect the speed of the laptop, a common one is not cleaning the fans vent leading to overheating which the laptop will try to protect itself from by self limiting the processing power it uses and of course over the course of a year your temporary folders will start to clock up as well due to continual updates. As long as you look after your laptop properly you can mitigate these but even if you do the laptop will still appear to slow down over time, mostly due to software updates and new applications will demand more from the machine as the improve.

Yes I did mean to say it is more a size vs cost with SSDs rather than it will be inherently smaller.

I'd look at Google Chrome books. Will do everything you need and many schools are now adopting these and using Google workplace services.

For the money they will perform much better than a Windows laptop which will be underpowered for that money.
