Overview: Connect external displays to M1 Macs

There is now more clarity with regard to the models that can already be ordered – besides the initial euphoria, there was hardly a feature of the ARM Macs imaginable that would not be superior to the Intel counterparts. But this is not quite the case: If the user wants to use external screens, the M1 models have one or the other disillusionment ready – because there are certain compromises.
