One of the deciding factors when buying a new mouse is going to be whether you want a wireless mouse or one with a cable? Wireless mice are more convenient with no cables to get in the way, but they often have some lag which you will not notice in everyday use but could affect gaming performance. Wireless mice also require batteries which can be a real pain if the batteries go flat right in the middle of something important – especially if you don’t have spare batteries in the house! If you decide on wireless mouse, you have choices in terms of how they connect to your computer, Bluetooth or RF. RF (radio frequency 2.4Ghz) mice are usually better, more responsive, a longer range plus much better battery life – but they require a USB receiver which is usually in the form of a USB dongle which means they will tie up a USB port on your machine. Bluetooth mice are not quite as common and are often slightly more expensive, but they will pair with many Bluetooth enabled computers without needing a receiver plugged into a USB port. However the differences are really minor, and unless you have a shortage of USB ports, there is no point being too picky about Bluetooth versus RF 2.4Ghz wireless.
