What generally is considered a reasonable boot time, systems and drives have gotten much larger over time. Would like to see some boot up times posted for members future reference.

P.S. I will post mine next after I time it.

It takes about the same amount of time for me too. It is exactly two minutes from the time I turn my computer on until the icons are on the screen and its about 20-30 seconds after that until everything is loaded.

About three minutes. It's faster since my ISP switched security from Norton to Radial Point.
