I ride a BF, not a Brompton but that shouldn't effect which computer works well. Yes - wired is potentially a little more accurate because of occasional interference on wireless computers, but the wireless ones have gotten a lot better in the last few years and on any folder, the less wiring to get tangled when you fold, the better.
The main problem with wireless on folders is that the smaller wheel puts the transmitter further from the receiver, so you have to be sure the one you buy has a strong enough signal. In that regard and for accuracy, I've had a good experience with a Cateye Strada wireless.
