doesn't matter, but less than 4k

no preference, maybe MSI or Asus since used their desktop products before

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I will not be playing anything competitive, so I don't need high refresh rate. I'm fine with 1080p, 1440p would be awesome.
I will be using a wireless mouse/earphones, so external audio/trackpad issues don't matter. I just want to use the opportunity of our crappy black Friday deals in Canada and get my hands on something more or less good.

Thank you for looking at this thread.
