Default Bluetooth Mouse

I want a Bluetooth mouse for my ASUS Eee 1005HA. it includes Bluetooth.

There are times when I wish i could scroll. I have other mice, but it's a hassle with the USB cord.

Are Bluetooth mice any better/same/worse than IR/RF mice?

I am left handed, so i don't want a right hand orientation.

I see on Newegg that they are a bit more expensive, but if Bluetooth is that much beter, I'd go for it.

A regular wireless mouse would be cheaper and better.

How so? I thought Bluetooth would be better, in that it is a newer technology.

It depends on what you want. Doublehelix is talking about for gaming because there is a fraction of a second difference in response time. If you don't care about headshotting your buddy in the latest game get a bluetooth mouse - it will work great and you don't have to worry about wires.

I'm not talking about gaming. I've used a Bluetooth mouse, and it has a noticeable lag during normal usage. I wouldn't use one again.

I was referring to Lexluethar about gaming.
