The 4gb version is more than enough and 32 gb storage will work. Price wise it isn't great but a quick look on amazon didnt show much available for less.

Also SD card is not ideal for HA. Turn down/off logs and history, and backup often.

Don't use a regular SD card. You need a high endurance SD card or USB SSD drive if you want to avoid random crashes. Follow other's recommendations if you go the SD card route. Backup every day, turn off history. You are very likely to run into issues if you use regular SD cards.

Finding a USB enclosure that works with RPI4 is also problematic. Do your research before buying. Also, using the USB2 port instead of USB3 port may fix your USB boot issues.

Thank you for your detailed response! I went ahead and purchased this after looking around it seemed like this was the lowest price for all the components included. I will definitely upgrade the SD card.

Best of luck! Home Assistant is tough to learn but very powerful once you start customizing it. Also is a great real-life learning exercise to get exposure in Linux, Python, YAML, and CSS if you customize even further.

Good luck with Black Friday deals on the Pi. They are basically sold out globally.

This isn't really true. I've been using standard (quality) SD cards both with the Pi and a few alternative SBCs since the original Pi came out, one of which was online for almost 4 years doing ADSB reporting of thousands of flights a day, and have never had any trouble at all. If writes or write amplification is going to be a problem for your specific usage scenario you probably need to be running off of a USB 3.0 SATA adapter attached to a real hard drive. I ended up doing that with a Pi 4 and a cheap $19 SSD about a year ago because I had it lying around and the speed increase is insane.
