4 hour battery life at best. Did my research I hope you are happy. 4 hour battery is pretty damn poor imo.

Wrong. I own this laptop/tablet, it's less than 5

Just to add on here:-
Intel uses altogether a different architecture for their low powered Atom. Pentium and Celeron series and the current architecture is called Appolo Lake. They are far less powerful than the mainstream Core series architecture. Their performance limitation is not only because of the low thermal limits but also due to the inferior architecture.

On the other hand Core M series is a bit different. Each generation of Core M series has exact architecture of the same generation of Core i series. For example Core M5Y series was based on 5th Gen Core architecture or Broadwell, 6Y series is based on 6th gen or Skylake and 7Y series is based on 7th gen Kaby Lake architecture.
The main difference between a Core ix U series and Core M series is the TDP or Thermal design power. U series has thermal limit of 15W, so they can have very high clock frequency and most importantly, they can maintain that higher clock speed for longer time during workload, hence offering better performance. But they consume more power and need active cooling.
On the other hand Core M (Y series) has a TDM limit of maximum 6.5W bit most of them are set to 4.5W. So although they can have very high Turbo Speed, they can only maintain that speed for faction of time of their U counterpart, before throttling back to the base clock speed, due to the thermal limitation.
But because of the architecture superiority over the Atom / Celeron or Pentium, their performance is far higher than that, and for normal works like Documentation, browsing, Streaming, running less demanding applications, they normally behave like Core i3 and Core i5.
Hope that will clear the confusion among the different processors.

Battery life is around 5 hours to 6 hours with normal day to day use and yes, it can be charged through both of the Type-C Ports.

How likely am I to find something like this but with a 1080p screen for 500 or less? I also have a 256GB m.2 I can pull out of my current tablet so SSD size isn't an issue.

Is it possible (and/or necessary) to add more RAM to this?

This has pretty much the exact same specs as the Latitude 11 5179, which is about half the price

AKA, has no experience. Why are you even posting about what the battery life should be when you have zero idea? If you didn't have any experience with it, and didn't want to look clueless, the least you could have done was find a review. EEK!
