A few months ago I bought a new Mac: Mini i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, 512GB SDD running 10.15.7 Catalina. I bought the Intel version over the newer M1 version as I needed the extra ports to add 2 printers, scanner, DVD, etc. and as printers were getting on a bit and I wasn't sure about M1 driver availability at the time. I must say it is very nice, and am very pleased with it. It'll run DaVinci Resolve using HD videos (haven't tried 4K yet) on the base spec (can shovel up to 64GB RAM into it if you so desire). The M1 version is a much faster beast though - plenty of reviews on YouTube.
Next Mac I get will probably (OK, almost definitely) be an M1 laptop of some variety to replace my ageing mid-2012 MacBook Pro that still works fine, albeit I upgraded the HDD to a SSD and RAM to 16GB
