And the winner was.....DRUMROLL...Eee with 45 seconds!!!
Mac came in with a respectable 1 minute. Poor Compaq finally got to the login screen at 2 minutes, but after that I know there is another couple of minutes before he actually gets himself ready to go to work. I should add, of course, that the number of apps per machine does enter in, and probably some other stuff that hurts my head to think about. But there you have it, Eee is a fast starter. Next I will get my Eee to race with a new Dell Latitude that is up at my office, thus pairing up a netbook and a very small notebook. This time I am betting on Eee. I do plan to do some more serious comparisons and discussions about new equipment that we are trying out:
- Eee--really cool!
- Polariod PoGo Printer--compatibility problems so far
- Dell Latitude--love it
- Sony eReader--like it
- Kindle (not really new but I will be comparing it with the Sony)--love it
