Hello.. I am on lockdown (Apple M1) waiting for Parallels to get it together with the new Apple M1 chip.. My previous laptop suddenly crashed, and I bought the latest,.. I think Neil mentioned he was running on a Apple M1, but I couldn’t get it to work.. ugh..

Last laptop crashed, and until Parallels gets a fix for Apples M1 chip, I am on lockdown.. I think Neil was using a M1 chip with his Apple .. I tried loading Paralles test program, but could not figure out the AMD (?) work around..

As the M1 is new it may take time for vendors to catch up. This applies to many areas of macOS, even as developers using Apple tools we have limitations we have to work around. It's new tech and this is going to take time.

A couple months ago I bought a Dell XPS 17 with i9 processor, touch screen....best laptop I've ever owned. Love the large display, great keyboard (better than my MacBook Pro). Battery life isn't as good as a MacBook Pro but I'm always around power and don't really care about battery life, even when flying on airlines I have power. I highly recommend anyone looking for a great laptop to consider the Dell XPS.

With the parallels technical preview you can download the build, but how do I get past the ARM That the Build requires.. Neil are you using parallels technical preview?


  • An ARM-based operating system installation image (VHDX or ISO).

I am a VMWare Fusion customer and supporter, I am not using it on anything at this time as I am using a dedicated Dell system for Windows. You may want to check with them or research their plans. Again, "Apple Silicon" is new, things will catch up in time.

I guess I may need to go to Best Buy and purchase a inexpensive Windows computer just for the logbook for now.. Will logbook download and sync LBK files into the computer from my cloud?

Anything meeting the system requirements will work - yes Windows 10 is supported and recommended. Great operating system! You could also check eBay which I never do enough (or Craigslist) as there are great deals out there.
