    a large display, a wireless mouse and a touch screen

    Dear teachers,

    If I would say, " it features a large display, a wireless mouse and a touch screen"
    Is it correct grammar? or should I say " it features large display, wireless mouse and touch screen"?

    Thank you

    Thank you
    You should use a serial comma. Your second sentence is ambiguous. Is the touch screen wireless?
    I would use the unambiguous version.
