Internal vs PCM/External Wireless Cards

Just curious, but in general do external/PCM wireless cards get better reception than internal cards?
I have two laptops that alternate duty at work. One is an old Dell C400 (P3)that I equipped with a D-Link DWL-G650 PCM Card. The other is a Dell D600 that has whatever internal card it left the factory with. As slow as it is, the C400 can grab a WiFi signal anywhere. The D600 has a very limited range.
I have a couple of other PCM cards and just wonder if the external card would give better reception. The reception is a bigger criteria than looks or bulk.
All opinions appreciated,
