When the first M1 launched, my Macbook Pro was 7 years old and I was ready for a replacement. Outside of the need to run Brew using Rosetta (see M1 Mac Home Brew), I can't say I noticed anything. I haven't really bothered to try to update anything to M1 native, as it has been plenty performant.

However, now my VM server is 7 years old, and I am replacing it with a Studio. Already, I am feeling issues, even though I haven't gotten the new machine yet.
