    Laptop Vista32, Core2 T7400 @2.16 GHz = 40 secs to see the desktop.
    Netbook XP Pro, Atom CPU N270@ 1.60 GHz = 45 secs to see the desktop.
    Startup is longer (about 15 secs more) if Shadow Defender is scheduled at boot.They both shut down in 14 secs.

    From pressing the boot up (power up) button to loggin = 25 seconds dead with no tweak & all system loaded.

    Win7x64, 4GB RAM, Intel i5 750 and Intel 80GB SSD. I think the SSD makes a huge different to the boot up speed. I think.

    Windows 7 - c2duo/4gb ram - intel SSD 80gb hdd

    button on to bios done - 12 seconds
    bios done to login screen - 10 seconds
    login screen to active desktop - 3 seconds

    If you keep the bios boot portion out of a discussion of "how quickly do you boot into Windows", that is 13 seconds. Not too shabby.

    My main laptop :
    Initial start-up is fast , but not that fast . Of course - after 30 seconds (may be I should vote 30-60 sec.) to have a working machine. But it is pretty much always being either ON or in STAND-BY (SLEEP) modes so after sleep mode , it loads for a second-two.

    Intel Core2 Duo , 3 GB RAM , Windows 7 Home Premium

    I neutered services I will never use. Turned off the firewall and defender. No AV or other scanner of any kind. I have a few applications that run on bootup, like the HTOmega sound panel, volumouse, Intel SSD tray thingee, Sandboxie. Not much really. Honestly the SSD drive shaved I would say a good 15 seconds off the boot time. I am very happy with that purchase, even though it is only 80gb.
