You ran downstairs Christmas morning excited to get a brand-new Apple M1 processor-based MacBook. You plugged in the Type-C power supply, powered on, and watched anxiously as it updated before you added your account.
But then, you connected it to your USB-C (including Thunderbolt) docking station or adapter to find out that the M1-based MacBook supports only one external display monitor from its USB-C ports. You researched to find that apparently Apple divested itself from Intel for the processor, and also lost the Thunderbolt daisy chaining functionality (since Intel basically owns Thunderbolt). Besides, Apple never embraced DisplayPort Alternate Mode MST for daisy-chaining.
Alas, Targus to the rescue!
