Yes! Perfect match.

To add to what someone else said, 256GB is a good amount for someone primarily doing text based work (eg Microsoft Word) because text files are tiny. But if you’re doing large photo libraries or video libraries then 256GB is not a lot for internal storage. Which is why I recommend getting external storage when needed.
