I have one of these coming. $41NZD. No issues with the current one, but, more speed is good.
The ones at ascent etc were all mini pcie, not the correct M2 / NGFF ones for our laptops.

Update - this has arrived and I have just installed it. Works well, now as a link speed of 300Mbps (only a N router).
Can now copy files off my laptop @ ~20MB/s.

What was shipped was the std intel version instead of the dell one. Had to disable the BT part and then re-enable as it was initially disabled due to the bus address changing.
No need to update any driver files - current one worked without issue.

Only issue is that the antenna connectors are small. Very small. Aligning them was "fun".

Just updated the drivers on mine from the Intel website.. the card seems to be working fine now. will update if there are any issues. Also, I was looking to probably sell the laptop for the cost if anyone here missed out on it. PM me if you are interested.

I see the price has gone up to $1,199.00, is this model still worth it?
