My $249 Samsung Google Chromebook cold boots in only 7 seconds. That's 7 seconds from pressing the power button to the login screen. Chrome OS is very fast without all of Microsoft's bloatware to slow it down. That's with a 1.7 GHZ dual core Samsung Exynos ARM processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 16gb SSD and NO WinTel Inside!
The PC is Dead! Windows Vista started the Death of the PC, now Windows 8 will finish it. Lots of users are switching to non-WinTel products without Metro Tiles. Besides going to the GOOG and AAPL message boards, I'll switch to their products too. Microsoft is History!
