1. WiFi speed

A higher maximum Wi-Fi speed results in better performance. This is measured in megabytes per second.
1750MB/s
Asus GX1008B V5: 2000MB/s

2. external antennas

More antennas result in increased signal strength. External antennas can be repositioned in order to improve the signal, and replaced with a longer antenna if needed.
