You know what, I think in an earlier OS version I couldn't access the Handoff option in settings without device ARPT so I used the kext to do that. I just checked my settings and whattayaknow, Handoff option is there without the kext. Thanks for the tip.
Since I'm a tinkerer but also work around lots of activations I've got a designated USB drive for activations. If possible, it's a great move allowing you to either move from computer to computer like an iLok or to prevent de/re-activation.
Check NI support if interested.
I would build a Gigabyte z390 or z490 (budget pending). These are well documented and the support here is better than any company.
If you want an Apple product I'd wait a moment as the industry catches up to Apple Silicon.
