    What is ur bootup time?

    If I am lucky, roughly around 1 minute plus, including passwords.

    It took 9 second to get to the windows loading screen from the moment I push the power button. From pushing the button to windows desktop (after entering the password), took 30 seconds.

    I have a X200
    - OCZ Agility 60GB
    - 4GB DDR3 RAM
    - 2.4GHz P8600

    28.43 seconds. That's starting the T410 with my fingerprint and that auto-entering my Windows password, and connecting to my Wireless network.

    T410: Core i7-620m, 4GB DDR3, Corsair P128 SSD.

    Probably less than 30 seconds, although I haven't timed it - I'll time it next boot and report back. I've noticed that password protection slows down the boot time rather significantly, even when discounting the time it takes to type in the password.

    Before my Windows 7 and Intel SSD upgrade, my boot was over a minute, probably a minute and a half at least.

    I have bios passwords and a encrypted hard drive so I have login. But if you don't have any of those and you have an SSD it can be quite fast...

    Getting out of sleep is probably less than 3s (though I have to login).

    Using a clean install, my boot time is about 30 seconds, and this includes an encrypted HD. Then again, boot times are almost meaningless today. I reboot maybe once or twice a month for updates and whatnot—the rest of the time I’m sleeping or hibernating.

    Holy crap... Really? That's i guess understandable but how are boot times meaningless? It's all about squeezing as much productivity as you can in a minute these days or at least that's the aim of corporations/business, time is money, and why do you think Phoenix has an instant post BIOS?

    I guess if you reboot daily/many times per day it’s not meaningless to you, but I don’t know anyone who does that—and if 30 seconds is too long for someone to wait once a month, well, I guess they have much bigger issues.

    notice everyone who are quoting around the 30s boot time have SSDs and windows 7. so with a standard HDD, you get boot times in the order of 30s?
