    Thanks for the review. Considering my limited funds, this is the upgrade I may go for. My one big question: can I slave my old iMac to it as a monitor and external storage? What about migrating my apps folder and upgrading all my Adobe apps?

    I have no idea about using the iMac as a display. You will need to re-install all apps fresh, because you want as many of them to be native for the M1 chip as possible. This means all new App Store downloads and new Adobe downloads. Adobe’s release versions are not yet native to my knowledge, but some of the public betas are (or soon will be). You also have to be careful with what works and what doesn’t. For example, the Resolve 17.0 betas are not compatible, but the 17.1 betas are. Quite a few video plug-ins will not work.
