There are pros and cons when buying a first generation product like Macbooks and Mac Mini computers with Apple M1 chipsets. Analyst Patrick Moorhead bought a new M1 processor MacBook Pro. He complained that it would take 11 minutes or more to restart after updating to Big Sur.
Another example is that Rosetta has been installed, and the software is still prompted to install it. After trying to uninstall and reinstall, the Edge browser crashes.
In addition, Adobe Reader X1 11.0.10 cannot be installed, Acrobat DC cannot be installed, Office startup time is too long, Logitech C922 camera management software suddenly crashes, Samsung T5 SSD backup software cannot be installed, HP Smart Print program does not work, Box Drive does not work Installation, WinZip 8 cannot run after installation, etc.

Of course, Moorhead is not the only one who has the problem, and a lot of similar feedback on social platforms is searched. Even registered Is Apple Silicon Ready? For his account, the owner of Up said that 60% of his commonly used software is not compatible with Apple M1.
Moorhead finally said that it lasted 5.5 hours at full power, which is far from the official target.
