Given the 34" LG monitor I'd been eyeing off was entirely unavailable everywhere, I'd decided to just stick with my iMac-in-Target-Display-Mode setup for when the new MacBook Pro arrives. Unfortunately it turns out that the iMacs with Thunderbolt DO NOT work in TDP with M1 Macs. 😞 So I'd be without a proper desk setup. On a lark over the weekend I decided to check for that monitor again, and lo and behold it was in stock! Ordered one and it just arrived now. 🎉
This machine is ridiculous. I’ve been unplugged for two and a quarter hours now, with the two efficiency cores going almost nonstop with upgrading Xcode, backing up via Time Machine, backing up to Backblaze, and upgrading all the things for Homebrew, and I’m down to… 83% battery. And at no point have I heard the fans, I can't even tell if they're on or not.
To properly do this rearranging, though, I've subsequently realised that I ALSO need a laptop stand that can move the laptop higher than my current one, so now I've had to order one of those too, heh.
