I recently setup 2 10v's with Snow Leopard and Windows 7. The OSX side is definitely slower booting compared to Windows. I even have a 64GB SSD
drive in one of the 10v's.
Now... in my 13" MacBook Pro unibody, I have the very same 64GB SSD
hard drive and my boot time from the time I press the "on" button to full boot is about 12 seconds.
Not really a fair comparison but still.. Why is it that it takes so much longer for OSX to boot on the netbooks ? Is it because of all the extra drivers and kext files that need to be loaded ?
The longer boot time isn't really a big deal for me considering it's basically 2 netbooks in one for less than $300. I also added Bluetooth, Wireless N, and 2GB of ram. This thing is pretty awesome, very portable. Especially with being able to tether my iPhone to it for even more wireless mobility.
