Was told my brand new MacBook Air's M1 was incompatible with Adobe and I wouldn't be able to use Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign. I sought help when it froze during launch and would never even open the program and after 4 hours with support I'm still not able to do my work on my computer. This is insanely inconvenient and I'm very frustrated that I spend 4 hours with 4 different support members who didn't help me.
