If you’re using any kind of external device, like monitors, disk drives etc then I advise extreme caution in upgrading. Search for “Big Sur watchdog timeout”. Seems to be a bug carried over from Catalina and never fixed.

I upgraded to Big Sur about a year ago on two computers and also bought a new one with Big Sur already installed. My 2020 Mac Mini is connected to a 32” NEC monitor, 3-4 external hard drives and an eGPU. No problems with any of it. You mentioned in your post that you had problems with one computer and not another so maybe if there are problems it’s computer dependent?
