Dell E6230 specs : battery, HDD, USB3 port

I saw in one url/site (which I don't have anymore) that if an E6230
comes with battery that 'sticks' out from the edge of the laptop's
back, there's a longer lasting battery.  Is that so & how many cell
is that?

E6230, regardless of what option/configuration is bound to come
with 2 USB 3 ports ?

Is the HDD that comes with E6230  5400 or 7200 rpm?

What are the optional batteries that I can purchase separately
for E6230 that will give it the longest battery operation hours?

Q1: Usually a battery that sticks out is a more cell type battery.  The specific laptop you have mentioned has an option for the following:

3-cell - Lithium Ion battery with ExpressCharge
6-cell - Lithium Ion battery with ExpressCharge
6-cell - with 3 Year Limited Hardware Warranty Lithium Ion battery
9-cell - Extended battery

Q2: Yes, 2 USB 3.0 ports no matter what configuration.

Q3: The option for a 5400 and a 7200 RPM drive are offered and it can have either/or.

Here is what is documented:

7200 rpm SATA up to 320GB
5400 rpm SATA up to 320GB
Mobility Solid State up to 256GB

Q4: There are a ton of aftermarket batteries, I can't think of any specific battery that may be better than the 9-Cell factory battery, but I am sure you can research that.

Hope that helps, and for reference here is the .pdf spec sheet I used for the above info:

So is the 'stick' out battery that my corporate offers a 3 or 6 or 9 cell battery?
Usually in my experience the "sticks out" batteries are all the 9 Cell types.
