Laptop with 1366 x 768 res. Had it for a long time and just stuck with it. I hookup a mouse of course, no keyboard though (tried playing on the touchpad for fun and was hard fighting 1600s back in the day 11).
Back in the day was when? When I played rated games multiple times per week in 2012-13, I also played on that resolution and without mouse and was ~1600-1700. I did not think that a top player would lose so much just because of a mouse.

The gaming experience for me on laptop has been always terrible. And what is even worse is bad mouse. I have always used desktop with a proper logitech mouse and keyboard. Without that I kinda lose any motivation to play because it just does not feel comfortable for me and I don't enjoy the game fully.

I'm building an Intel i9-9940X, RTX 2080TI, 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB, 2TB SSD, 4GB WD Red Caviar, Custom liquid loop machine to be sure to max out my AoE2 frames. It's important to a hardcore gamer like me to get the ultimate performance from my rig.

It's important to get that 500 fps for maximum efficiency in microing your lumber vills.

That's quite incredible if you could play on the touchpad and be around that rate.

It was actually around 2012 for me as well. I only played 2 games this way if I am not mistaken. I was curious how difficult it would be. First game I won, second one I lost. It was a struggle both games, and I didn't bother scouting with sheeps at start because it seemed like it would be too much.

A mouse definitely goes a long way, and a bigger res helps as well but I think this is fine generally (my friend would always say my rate would be at least +250 pts if I played on like 1920 x 1080, but don't believe it would increase that much). But, a pretty big problem with 1366 x 768 (and anything around this) is that you will far too often get into these little blind spots, usually with enemy units at the edge of your sight during fights. A pretty big disadvantage when playing someone on a high res and is skilled, and can cost the game if you aren't really alert.

Fail poll, it's actually interesting, so even... Should have had options such as a table, chair, clown-map or weekends to be of the usual level.

I play very little these days but I have a Thinkpad X220 laptop (1366×768). I mostly use it for coding. On my previous laptop I sometimes used touchpad (lol) but this one's is pretty bad, so I use an external mouse now for AoC.
