They dont have anything other than the main battery + flash memory. While its possable to shutdown a 5500, swap the battery and power on without rebooting or losing any open files, with the C series this is not possable.
There is nothing to even hold the time and date?
Somehow it holds the time somewhere. It does this through the use of 'sltime'. You call 'sltime-set' to set the time, and 'sltime' to retrieve the time.
I've got it set to call 'sltime -set' on suspend, shutdown, and 'sltime' in one of the startup scripts. As my Z hardly crashes, and when it doesn I quickly restart, I don't tend to lose time.
Still, it would be nice if it had a hardware RTC.
