The network card options i have with building this laptop are.

Gigabit lan & wireless intel ac-8265 m.2 (867mbps 802.11ac) +bt 4.0

or

The same thing but with vPRO.

I don't know what vPRO is, is it worth the extra £10?

vPRO is an Intel technology that was first introduced around twelve years ago. Its primary function is to enable business IT support departments remotely manage, diagnose and update a business user's computer without having any 'hands on' involvement.

Is it worth the extra £10? That's for you to decide, but if you're a home user the answer is probably 'no'.
