Which do you recommend and why? I am trying to decided which I want to get with my new laptop, but cannot decide.

I like the idea of the bluetooth so I don't have to use one of the usb ports, but are they reliable? Do they have more problems than the usb ones?

I use a bluetooth mouse on a couple of systems and have occasional issues (worst case, the software pops up at boot and asks you to reconnect). Otherwise it's fine. Obviously with a wired mouse you should never have any issues at all. Bottom line, whatever you get be sure to purchase from a retailer who will accept a return in case you're not happy.
