Not offhand.

 

Here is a search on Amazon for AC1200 USB Wi-Fi adapters. 

 

Pick the one that has the best reviews and value for the money.

 

Amazon.com : AC1200 USB wifi adapter

 

Some will be larger in size than others, and have large antennas, while others will be very compact.

Hi:

 

You can replace the Realtek RTL8723BE-VB 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 combination WLAN adapter with this model...

 

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.

 

The card has a maximum throughput of 433 MBPS on the 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi band with an AC router and an excellent signal.

 

You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express. 

 

I see some Intel 3165 cards listed on the eBay listings, so don't buy those.

RTL8821CE - Buy RTL8821CE with free shipping on AliExpress

 

On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001.

would this be better than me getting a usb wifi adapter?  or which one  is better and faster?

HP Recommended

You can buy faster USB wifi adapters.

 

Personally, I would rather use an internal card.

HP Recommended

Which one is faster and more reliable?

HP Recommended

I have two HP notebooks with the RTL8821CE wifi card and they both work fine with it.

 

If you want a faster USB wifi adapter, you need to get one that is rated AC1200 or better.

 

AC600 would be the same as the RTL8821CE's throughput.
