Never use HDMI ports, DP is so superior.
The problem with many of these so called pros you hear from in these forums, is the constant whining of how come Apple took away such and such port from their beloved Mac circa 2012 or whatever.
Part of being a “pro” is planning ahead of time for your presentations. As part of that planning you call ahead and find out what technology said conference room or auditorium is using. If it’s HDMI and your laptop does not have that port, then you make sure to carry a TB3 —> HDMI adapter with you.
Now Apple has brought back the HDMI port on the MBP but we still have someone on this forum complaining that its HDMI 2.0 and not HDMI 2.1.
Can’t please everyone I guess.

If only apps like these
could be available on the iPad app store.

Mono --> Stereo was noticeable
Stereo --> Spatial not as much, but I wouldn't say that it sounded worse than stereo.
I have the Beats Studio 3 which is probably not the best set of headphones to sample this.

I just don't get the purpose of a 16 GB RAM/1 or 2 TB M1 iPad Pro unless the device will be able to run Mac apps (vs 8 GB RAM/256 or 512 GB models). I suppose I get it for high end video editing, but other than that, I don't get its purpose otherwise.It seems obvious to me that Apple will make the iPad Pro instantly dual boot: as soon as you’ll connect your mouse or an external screen, iPadOS will offer to switch to macOS, effectively converting you 13” iPad in a 13” ‘MacBook’. Why not? That wouldn’t be a compromise, for the screen as well as the rest of the hardware of the iPad Pro is perfectly capable of running a desktop class OS…Disconnecting you screen could simply offer you to return to iOS…It surprises me that no one else on the internet seems to consider this possibility…?
iPad docked in magic keyboard ==> running MacOS.
Undock the iPad and ==> MacOS goes to sleep and iPad OS wakes?
What happens to your Excel spreadsheet in MacOS? It goes to sleep when you undock and don't have access to it any longer because you're now in iPad OS and the Excel version for that OS, is strictly sandboxed?
What happens to you mobile bank app in iPad OS if you suddenly sit down and dock your iPad to the Magic Keyboard? It disappears? Are you expecting it to automatically transition you to the bank's web page?
All of this may sound easy but am quite certain that it will cause major headaches to the software engineering team that takes up that challenge, not to mention app developers.
In the end, if you want a lightweight MacOS device, then MacBook Air may be your best bet. If you wait 'till October you may even get a smaller lighter redesigned for Apple Silicon version of it.
