You bought a very similar machine :-) (I might get a bigger SSD and no
HDD and IPS for the screen).
* Intel Dual Band Wireless 7260AC with Bluetooth 4.0
* Intel Dual Band Wireless 7260AN with Bluetooth 4.0
Yesterday I Googled for some time: any reason not to buy the 7260AN?
I found many references regarding AC but not AN. Does AN include all the
AC standards plus something more?
