S430 Wifi + Bluetooth Card



I'm loooking to replace the half PCI-E card of a Lenovo ThinkPad S430 (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230, WiFi + Bluetooth). I was looking into Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260. But...

  1. I'm not sure if it's compatible or not. For starters, the S430 comes with Ivy, not Haswell.
  2. I've seen a lot of cards listed in ebay (mostly from China) are for only certain models. I guess they're locked? Would on a S430?
  3. I'm not sure if there's a better option.
  4. If only some cards work in the laptop, which card would be the best ("faster") possible option?
  5. If I can force some other card (IE Intel 7260), how many antennas does this model have? What'd be the max attainable speed?
