Yes, the space gets tight those 128GB drives, with macOS taking about 15GB and the mystery 'System Data' 30-40GB ( In this unit we won't be requiring the use of Xcode - after all, most students don't have a Mac - and you can certainly complete all the labsheets and projects using just a character-only text editor. I use vi, or vim, for nearly all of my programming, teaching, and staff-admin work, on Macs and Linux, much of which is undertaken across a network. After you've tackled the learning curve, it really pays off to gain familiarity with one editor that is widely available.
