So I have a Macbook 12 and I looking for a monitor to use as a second display. There does not seem to be much options on Amazon for monitors which support USBC display and PD.

4K is not important for me and 1080 will be too low a resolution for a monitor. Hence I feel a QHD would be the minimum I should go with.

Macbook 12 supports upto one monitor (with 4K display). But I want the purchase to be future proof coz a year from now I am thinking of switching to a Macbook Pro and a dual monitor setup. I would prefer to carry over the monitor and adding another monitor to it.

What are the possible options and from where. Or wait till the supply chains normalize in 3-6 months?

Forgot to mention, I am not a fan of UltraWide monitors. Prefer a dual monitor setup over them. So that 34 incher is out of question. Also a dual monitor will let me half stagger my expenses over a period of year instead of upfront.

You can get a USB-C to hdmi converter and get any display to work. You need not be limited to USB-C only.

Yes you are right, but I wanted to eliminate the clutter of cables and converters, which are also expensive, unreliable and bulky. With PD on USBC I can forego a laptop charger. I have a Belkin USBC to HDMI converter. I am willing to wait a while and if even then I am not able to get something within my constraints then will most likely go with the legacy connectors.
