With wireless mice becoming cheaper and better by the day, it makes every sense in the world to pick one up while billing your new laptop. But before you do that, give these points some thought:
Wireless mice are primarily of two types these days: the most common one being regular 2.4 GHz RF and the fancier one being Bluetooth. The former is the one that's most prevalent in the market. It is also the cheapest to buy and easiest to use. The mouse usually contains a tiny USB receiver, which you can pull out of the underside of the mouse and connect to your laptop. Turn the mouse on and you're good to go. With the latter, you'll have to pair the device with your laptop. If you're looking for something that just works, get a regular wireless mouse; Bluetooth mice are still fresh in the market and Windows' Bluetooth drivers occasionally like to go on strike.
The size of the mouse is an element to consider if you're going to use the device heavily. Buying a very small mouse can cause considerable stress on your fingers, and even cause repetitive stress injury (RSI) in the long run. Many mice are sold in transparent blister packs that wrap themselves closely around the mouse; this should allow you to judge the size of the mouse by holding it in your hand.
