I’m currently running 2021 LT for Mac on a 2015 Mac Pro laptop (Catalina), but I’d like to move up to a Mac Mini that will drive two 27” displays. The non-pro Mini has an M2 chip and the Pro has an M1 instead of the Intel chips that Apple has been using for awhile now. Are there any issues with upgrading that the community might be aware of, either with the hardware or the OS?

I don’t use a Mac but here’s the minimum requirements (https://www.autodesk.com/support/technical/article/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/System-requirements-for-AutoCAD-LT-2021.html) for Mac. Interesting that it lists the cpu type as Intel. I guess it’s too old to support M series. 2024 does support both Intel and M series.

Thanks, Ed. That’s what I needed. If I upgrade the hardware, I’ll get the AutoCAD upgrade too.
