The more common cordless mice use RF, radio frequency.

Bluetooth probably has a longer range, not sure. If you don't need to take your mouse a long way from the PC, it doesn't really matter which one you use. Bluetooth is probably more expensive, although I haven't really checked.

RF mice are probably easier to set up.
