Hey I also bought a Mac M1/Silicon laptop for the purposes of seeing if my automations still work on it. So far, I'm 50/50 on whether it's an overpriced piece of dead-weight or a state-of-the-art future-generation machinery. Stuff that I am used to working is having a problem or works a bit differently and any fix from Apple involves an insane amount of machine-changing steps which start out with a note "Make sure to have your entire Mac backed up because this process will likely erase all.." Based on this, I recommend to not get the brand-new Big Sur machines for automation and workflow purpose until 1 year passes and Apple will have (hopefully) resolved all the issues which have me currently with one foot out the door to return the useless brick to the Apple store from whence it came. However, when it does work, it really works, so the working parts have my other foot back inside, thinking "calm down, surely Apple didn't make a completely useless machine and maybe it's got a few issues, but Apple are geniuses they will no doubt make it perfect with some updates, right, right?".
