Summary
The USB Novel 600A1 AU USB WiFi adapter is a good low-cost unit that would be a good fit for a laptop.
 
While it will also work with a desktop PC there are bigger units with better range for a desktop.
 
The speeds were good with 204Mbps Download in the 5.8Ghz band.
 
I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
