2 - The Hardware/OS Tsunami of M1 and Big Sur - with Laurence Head
Laurence provided a demonstration of the clean, approachable user interface experience with Big Sur on his new M1 chip MacBook Air. He jumped in with both feet and is glad he did.  Many new users in the Mac world may already be familiar with the iPad and iPhone, so it makes sense that the MacOS user experience is now more like IOS. IOS apps will even now run on your Mac. Some work better than others, but there are work arounds.
The new Maps app has really been improved.  The "Look Around" view has high clarity. You can navigate as if with virtual reality.  A "3D Flyover" tool has been developed for top destinations (rendered) such as the Hoover Dam and Golden Gate Bridge.
Check out the November 20th Apple event on the M1. Components that used to be on separate chips are now on one chip ... much faster ... twice the CPU performance at 25% of the power. His laptop doesn't even need a fan. LeRoy mentioned that his new Mac Mini never gets hot.
Universal apps optimized for the M1 chip run three to six times faster. There is a built in Rosetta for other apps which provides translation on the fly.  Photos runs butter smooth despite thousands of images.  There is no longer a bounce when clicking on app icons since they open so quickly.  His creative work is much enhanced with the very fast response time.
The MacBook Air only has two USB-C ports, but this can be expanded with an external dock. There have been some problems with certain Bluetooth devices, which should soon be resolved.
