Im planning to have a wireless setup and my keyboard(RK61) is capable of bluetooth. They say that bluetooth is not good because of latency so im considering buying a wireless mech keyboard. 

which is better?

Welp @5GigaaHertz Its a double-edged Sword... Bluetooth gives your Device more battery Life, and the 2.4GHZ dongle gives you more performance

2.4GHz is better. Bluetooth can be a big problem in terms of latency, but it's a nice-to-have if you plan on using it for a laptop/tablet/phone/etc... With 2.4GHz the latency problem is non existent with modern peripherals.

 

Edit: If you plan to buy a new wireles keyboard i can recommend the Corsair K63.

I'll go for the latter as the keyboard is always at my desk and I never used my keyboard to connect to my iPad.
