Keyboard Mouse For Asus Chromebit

In a weak moment a couple of years ago, I bought an Asus Chromebit. It is not my main way to get online, but I bought it as a backup of sorts if/when somebody's computer goes Tango Uniform around the compound.

Anyway, I was snooping around the basement and found an old Samsung SyncMaster 192MP. It has an HDMI port. I also found an HDMI to DVI cable in the basement and bought an HDMI connector. The Chromebit works through this. It may even be faster than the wife's old Samsung Chromebook.

I am now trying to decide if I want to go with a wireless USB keyboard mouse or a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. It looks like Bluetooth is a bit more expensive than wireless USB keyboard mice combos.

So, my questions are, what are the most compelling reasons to go with Bluetooth over USB? Is it simply because they are compatible with smartphones and tablets? Should I simply go to a local Micro Center and get the least expensive Logitech USB mouse/keyboards comos and be done with it?
