Which would be the best wireless card to choose from Dell?

Hi, I'm thinking about getting a Dell Studio 1558 and am wondering what are the relative benefits between the 'Dell Wireless 1520 Half Mini Card (802.11n)' and the 'Intel® Wireless LAN 6200 2x2 802.11a/b/g/n card (EUR)'. The Intel one is £5 cheaper, although I think I'd be tempted to get that one because of this 'Centrino' thing from the past even if the prices were the same. Anyway, is there any reason the Dell one should be £5 more and which one do you think I should get?

Thanks.

Do you think in that case it would be better compatibility wise to get the Intel one with it being an Intel processor that I intend getting? Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.
