Wireless recommendation: Lenovo vs Intel ?

In choosing between Intel 7620 single or dual or the Lenovo ThinkPad wireless for a T440p or T440s, I need help.  

 

I do *not* need high end speed, but I do want good sensitivity to pick up weak signals and hold a reliable connection. A solid driver, properly updated, is essential.

 

To those who have used both: what should I choose?

 

(And is the antenna the same no matter what wirelesss card or display choose?)

 

Thank you.

Intel by a long shot. The "ThinkPad" branded card is actually a rebadged Realtek, which is just plain mediocre.

Antennae are the same either way.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen
TPT1: 1839-23U
