How long does it take your computer to boot up? My computer currently takes 26 seconds with a 5400 rpm hard drive and a 2.4GHz processor using OS X.

I'm running an iMac with a core i3 processor, and 4GBs of RAM, and it takes me roughly 15-20 seconds to boot up.

I just installed the os on my desktop. And my laptop has always been this slow.

I reduced my boot-up time very much using Soluto, highly recommended :)

So what's your boot up time?

(Oct 27 '10 at 00:15) FilipinoPower FilipinoPower's gravatar image

According to Soluto 2 mins average (before using soluto it was like 5 mins). My PC is rather old so it's good for me considering I've never had to reinstall the OS.

What are the specs on your computer?

(Oct 27 '10 at 00:31) FilipinoPower FilipinoPower's gravatar image

Core 2 Duo e4300 (1.8Ghz) + 4GB RAM + nvidia 7600gs + Win Vista 32 bit. It's probably because of Vista but I haven't had the chance to upgrade to 7.

(Oct 27 '10 at 01:42) Alekz Alekz's gravatar image

My boot time is normally about 30-35 seconds.

I don't know what my boot time is since I'm usually doing something else as its booting.

I don't really care how long it takes, I mean does it even matter? As long as I can do what I need to go on my PC then I'm happy.
