I'm doing a research about wireless sensing, and it needs Intel WiFi Link 5300 to collect channel state information (CSI).

The laptops available for the wireless NIC are all off the shelf, as the picture showing.

So, I'd like to buy a laptop on sale and replace the wireless NIC with Intel WiFi Link 5300.

Is there anyone who can offer me a recommendation?

By the way, I'm not willing to buy a pre-owned X200

You cannot replace the nic on any of the laptops:

Recommendation: Find a laptop with the nic you want already installed.
