I agree, I was also expecting an improved CPU that is more suitable specifically for a Desktop computer.

Right now it feels like there are no additional benefits of owning an iMac comparing to the MacBook Air M1 that I already have.

Don't get me wrong. M1 Chip is great, but I was also looking for some additional and specific advantage that could make iMac on M1 a distinctive choice over anything else, at least for the Desktop.

Maybe more memory options? Maybe more expansion options? Maybe some customizations possible, since it's not limited to a small amount of laptop space.

Nope, doesn't seem like that. Then why do I need instead of MacBook Air which I can take anywhere with me and it runs perfectly well from a built-in battery?
