    I recommend SSD as well... if not able to upgrade to SSD at the moment (if you bought OPO recently hehehe) I would suggest next best thing besides upgrading RAM and that is re-installing Windows - wiping it clean, then installing clean install of it - you would not believe how much of junk resides on the machine after being used for 2-3-4 years :)

    But SSD's are way too costly. But agree with you.

    With SSD as boot disk, my Windows 7 can boot up faster than the iPad from OFF position.

    Get cc cleaner and disable as many startup keys as possible, clean some stuff, uninstall useless programs, disable useless services. You can still get a fast boot with an HDD, but an ssd would be much better

    I've wondered too. Only on certain people, too. I thought it was unread posts, but there's already a graphic for that.

    That's not the best bootup time considering it's meant to be a "gaming" pc...I've got 14 sec with my gaming pc. But at the same time, I'm also using ssd.

    Windows 8.1
    Average boot time is 7 seconds.

    Simple advice : Get a SSD.

    It's been said it's to show if you are online or not. And it can be disabled in settings

    You can literally buy an SSD for like $40 thats big enough to install the OS. Thats all you need. 32GB SSD's are real.

    I wouldn't be comfortable with 32gb. Isn't that cutting it too close? Specially since it's recommended to leave 15-20% free for the ssd to perform well.
