Im about to buy a inspiron 13. As im going to install ubuntu on it, i checked and all the system seems to work well. The only thing that i readed that it doesnt work well is the wifi part.

There is only 2 choices, 1395 or 1500 both of dells broadcom; no Intel chip.

I really looking foward to get a native driver as i do like to experiment with monitor mode, but i readed that neither of the 2 work other way than ndiswrapper.
Either way, wich of the 2 works better? I dont need the "N wireless suport" but im willing to pay the extra cash for the 1500 if its worth it, i just want the wifi chip that works better on ubuntu.

Wich one works better?

Thanks in advance for your response
