With that said, we cannot miss praising Dell for leaving at least one RAM SODIMM on the motherboard, as well as supporting PCIe x4 drives via their PCIe x4 slot. However, what gave us the biggest enjoyment was the battery life of this sucker. With its larger than average 51Wh battery pack, we were able to get more than 16 hours of Web browsing and around 15 hours and a half of video playback. This is a huge improvement over its predecessor, despite the latter got pretty decent results, as well.
