    What has the battery life on the RB Stealth been like? 6 hours too much of a reach?

    Thanks!

    6 hours with battery saving mode on, keyboard on dim, and using edge, yes.

    is the ram upgradeable on these or are they all soldered. 8gb on some of them is simply not enough

    Soldered on. Not upgradeable.

    And yes 8GB is low. But it's not unusable. 8GB is actually enough for most of what people do on a computer. If you run a single game, or use multiple 10's on tabs on a web browser, you're not going to even use all 8GB, let alone come close to needing 16GB.

    8GB of RAM only becomes an issue when you do either do unnecessarily heavy multitasking (e.g. keep 50 Chrome tabs open, while also running a game), or start running programs that don't belong on a low-power dual core mobile CPU (e.g. virtual machines, large databases, RAM disks).

    So if you aren't a power user, or if this isn't your primary computer where you will be running power-user jobs, then you can probably get by with 8GB of RAM. But if you really think 8GB will become a problem, then I'd consider a Dell XPS 14, Dell XPS 15, or Razer Blade 14.
