Newbie buying a Mac - what are minimum requirements for downloading multiple programs?

I just purchased the Black Friday deal for access to all Adobe programs for $40 per mo. and will be learnig at least 4 (if not more) programs. What is/are the minimum features, size storage/hard drive/memory, etc. I absolutely NEED to have on a new Mac to download multiple programs (at least InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere, maybe more) without problems? Adobe provides system requirements for one individual program, but nothing for multiple programs.

I will be purchasing a new Mac this holiday season and know I have to spend enough in order to use these 4-5 programs - otherwise the whole point is defeated - but I have a pretty limited budget and need some advice from someone that isn't trying to sell me things I don't need. I was looking at a new 2021 Macbook Pro but then a friend suggested that a Macbook Air might be powerful enough so I haven't even narrowed down which product to purchase. 

Can anyone please offer some advice? I'd really appreciate it!!!!

Thanks again!

Kate

You're right, there is nothing for multiple programs. Start by checking you meet the requirements for each program. Add together storage space. RAM needs to be at least the "comfortable" figure to run each one. The difference between an Air and a Pro is not so important as the difference between different configurations if memory, storage etc. but these are high end, demanding, professional tools.
