Latitude 7000 series thoughts | tweaks

I recently bought my dell latitude 7275 on amazon for $450 refurbished. It has the i5-6y57, 8Gb RAM, 256Gb SSD, and has the FHD screen (1920x1080). I think I got a great deal considering it has a 6 month warranty from dell and it has better hardware than you can find in a surfacebook for $1,500. Now… granted, I’m not saying structurally it’s as nice as a surface but it is nicer in some regards… it’s EXTREMELY light and it stays ice cold with my Intel XTU profile. My only issue is the battery life and the damn 40% dynamic brightness bug but I seem to have overcome both. My battery on average lasts 8-10 hr on time. And I have some powershell scripts that set the brightness where I want it and lock it. This also helps with battery. I’m curious what other owners have to say about their devices. I am more than happy to share my scripts, settings and such, but I’ll wait to see if this is even worth it as I search the internet I find very little about this device. Thanks.
