Same problem with the i5,8 ram version. 2 hours of battery at best. In addition, the device gets hot as hell even while only browsing the net. Already waiting for a response from Dell support whether is it about a faulty device

GMane, Try uninstalling Dell Support Assist software. It causes crashes and overheating.

Can an ethernet card be installed in this model 15 3511 and use a docking station to connect through? I also have a Microsoft Surface 4 that I use a docking station to utilize the ethernet because it is much faster than using wifi.

Cannot go for a higher laptop instead of finding money, the curse on the internet. Great.
