Make sure that the computer's video card or onboard video support the optimal resolution for the monitor. If they don't, they'll select an alternate resolution that isn't optimal. When that happens, things on the screen will either look squished or stretched.

IMO, using TV's at 42" and above and at 1080p is not good for office work especially when staring at the screen hours at a time. Same TV at 4k however is a a different story producing a much sharper picture. Casual use like gaming, web browsing and videos is just fine at 1080. Get a cheap(er) 4k TV and use the savings to buy a capable 4k video card. Both can be had for under $500 these days.
