If the size is concerning you may be better off with the M1 Mac Mini running dual monitors or an ultra wide monitor. Alternatively if you like the AIO functionality of the iMac you could run a second monitor off of that.

If you're considering the Mac Mini, I would wait until Mid-October when Apple is expected to release a Mac Mini with the new M1X chip and more thunderbolt/USP-C ports. Likely to support 3 monitors if you want to go that far.

Nope. Gotta know what you need when you buy the computer, no upgrades

Refurbished because of their thermals still killing the motherboard?
Love the design but the chipset is weak when doing cad. Hopefully they bring back the intel chipset.
lol we know you're a troll because nobody in their right mind would say "hope they bring back Intel"

Nah. I actually work with cad software. Hence my reference to cad. If you think trolling is actually telling the truth and how our office got two macs which went to interns instead, then thats okay. Everyone who hasnt had a clue about this is entitled to their opinion

The reason you like Intel is because most industry Cad software is optimized for Intel. (Still, surely a valid reason as the end user)

Give it some time and hopefully it won't be necessary any more.

It's not really that Intel is "better at this", it's that Autodesk has optimized for Intel.

M1 was not delivered by God, whatever the fanboys think. It is not ready for Corporate Prime Time. Neither are the new operating systems. Most creative departments, and others, will be largely sticking with Intel (and not upgrading to Big Sur and newer) for at least the next 1 or 2 years, because they just work and are a known entity, just like my newly-acquired loaded mid-2015 MBPro using Mojave (Catalina added nothing other than spinning beach balls and fan noise). FYI, I've been using Macs since System 7.

Quote from HY-SD :
That sounds more like budget reason (or simply laziness) more than anything else, something they would have done regardless.
When you've been sitting around a corporate senior management table for a few years as I have, let me know.

Corporations don't want to paint themselves into a corner. I personally know of one creative agency that got some M1s and returned them within a month. There were simply too many issues that hobbled deliverables, including critical software and plugins either not working correctly, or not even available.

That said, Apple will likely continue to offer the current Intels for quite a while due to corporate demand.

No well run company and/or one of reasonable size (lets say >100 employees) is going to deploy machines with a new architecture without months of testing and even then it would be need based. They definitely wouldn't go out and buy a number of computers, find out they don't work with anything they run and then turn around and return all of them.

Correct, so what I'm saying is, that's something these corporate shops would do no matter what. Everything has to be aligned perfect in order for them to upgrade.

So even when M1's hardware advantage is very apparent, they're not doing so due to whatever 3rd party software they're using.

Depends on how long it takes those vendors to update their stuff.

Actually - having worked in corporate America for quite some time (15+ years), part of which was in the in-house creative agency, I could absolutely see this happening within that kind of department. In my case, it would only be less than half a dozen computers and the creative team had the autonomy to choose their computers (vs. having to stick to the corporate-deployed machines). Point being, I don't think MrSkeptic's story is at all far fetched.

This. Definitely this.

And considering the current consumer line of M1s are certainly not "pro" (in prior years, they would be simply called "Macbooks"), it will be quite a while for this conversion to happen.

Quote from michael.ark69 :
My takeaway is that your company poorly allocated tech resources and treats their interns poorly.
Sure. Say that to a company in business for over 50 yrs with 8 offices around the states and 3 overseas.
But hey? What do I know? They wanted to try the new imacs since some of our rendering department is using them heavily and tried to transition them for cad use upon the recomendation of a guy who has an apple watch, iphone, brings his macbook pro, macbook air and ipad to work. We started with two. Then the interns got them and they will be doing photoshop and illustrator to fix pdfs and renders.
