    Anybody have a definitive answer for this?

    Have an nTB with 16gb and only seeing ~7hrs with my typical web browsing use. Wondering if the ram could be a factor.

    From what I read, it might decrease battery life but not by enough to worry about it. I have 16GB of RAM and most days I get about 8 hours unplugged with pretty heavy web browsing and other use so I'm not complaining at all and am really glad I got the RAM upgrade.
