In the middle of several books.
I use the OWC Thunderbolt Dock with my M1 MBA. It works great.


The other popular dock here that has good hands on experience is Caldigit.

If you want to connect multiple devices, especially external storage, it's better to get a powered dock for more consistent reliable performance. They are powered for a reason.

The non-powered ones are good for portability.

I don't know about the Hyperdrive. For portable use with my M1 MBP, I use a TwelveSouth StayGo usb-c hub.
https://www.twelvesouth.com/products/staygo-usb-c-hub

It's solidly built and has hdmi/ethernet/3xUSB-A/SD&microSD/USB-C passthrough power.
The short cable stows away inside the device and it also includes a 1meter usb-c cable to use when docked at home.
It works great and I haven't had any problems with it. It's about the same size as my old iPhone 5, but slightly more thicker.

At home I have the powered OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock Pro connected to my M1 Mac Mini. It's more expensive though (being TB3) and since I switched to the silent M1 Mini, I can hear the noise from the small fan in it.
