    I'm using Lenovo's M14 portable USB-C Monitor with my new MBP and its the perfect companion for my WFH setup. However, the only problem is that I can't manage to make "power pass through" to work. So now I am using both USB-C ports. I hope future updates will support it.

    Memory management is really superb with the new M1 Macs: Switching between 20 chrome tabs, 10 safari tabs, outlook syncing 4 accounts, twitter, telegram, messenger, whatsapp, excel, word and apple music is a breeze; no slowdowns at all. The best thing is that I can still instantly wake from sleep without seeing the dreaded spinning beachball. Life is good!

    I suggest directly plugging your M1 MBP via its included charging cable and adapter, it's a known issue that M1 macs brick when charged via USB-C hubs so regardless if it's an external monitor, just to be on the safe side. :)

    Any way I can run windows OS on my Macbook pro with M1 chip? If this question has been asked, can anyone refer me to the right thread?

    None at the moment. Unless MS releases a compatible ARM version or virtualization software like Parallels and Fusion come up with solutions to run functional and stable virtualized Windows.

    You can try this guide from 9to5Mac. I haven’t tried it myself, although I’ve been tempted to just out of curiosity.
