Long ago in a galaxy far away, there were differences. The 802.11_ standards were new and the various chip manufacturers were sometimes a little off the reservation in their early implementations. Thus it was important to assure compatibility between client and access point by using similar chipsets at both ends, sometimes even to the point of requiring both ends use the same brand and model series. Those days are over now. The chipsets all work fine. If you are choosing between two laptops, one with an Intel and the other with a Broadcom WiFi chip, your decision should be guided by the other features of the machines, not the particular WiFi chip OEM.

now you're asking the right question...

Every computer I have built in the past 15 years for myself, family, friends, neighbors, or clients has been an AMD CPU. F' those piggy Intel dirtbags, go with the Broadcom. As you can surely see, that is my purely personal reason that has absolutely no technical basis. But this is a technical forum, hence my earlier answers to your technical question.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
