My only concern is I still have one program that requires windows and I use Parallels for that. Evidently there is a workaround, I'll have to see about that. I can technically use one of my Intel based laptops in a pinch as I only need to use it every couple of months.

That's insoluble I'm afraid - however, if your Windows app will run on Windows 10 ARM (in the Windows emulation software, their equivalent of Rosetta 2) then you can get the version of Parallels that will run on M1. That will be very expensive - Windows ARM and Parallels - for something you only use every couple of months.

You'd be best using your Intel laptop for that.

That’s my thought.  And it’s ok if that’s the case.

My new Mac is special order evidently and it will take a couple weeks and I am becoming increasingly impatient but such is the life of a Mac enthusiast.
