Illustrator, Silhouette Studio and M1 Macs

I know this is an Illustrator forum, but in the past I've seen and responded to questions about Silhouette Studio, the software that drives the Cameo cutters from Silhouette America so I thought I'd throw this out here. 


I use Illustrator to create SVG and DXF files that I import into Silhouette Studio on a 2017 iMac that is realllllllly showing it's age. I'd like to buy a new computer, but I'm unsure of what the world of M1 brings me in terms of stability in software.


I know Rosetta exists to help with programs not designed for the M1 chips, but I'm looking for real world experience of anyone actually running Silhouette Studio on a new Mac to help me decide if I'm just trading one slow and aggravating experience (the outdated computer) for another (new computer, incompatabile software).
