The GIGABYTE P55W v6 is using what seems to be an SATA-based M.2 drive, but in the UEFI, I did find a menu for NVMe drives, so I assume you can upgrade to one if you want.

 

Network performance is strong and consistent with other notebooks that utilize Intel-based WIFI controllers.

 

 

Battery Tests

The P55W v6 has a much less power hungry GPU and display panel than most of the notebooks on the list. Overall, battery life is good, but don't expect to be taking it everywhere without charging.
