i too boot under 50 seconds, and i’m running quite a bit of software as well. loading win 7 ultimate 32 bit. i’m ready about 15 seconds after login (just tested it). which is why i’m thinking that i’ll wait until i have some obvious need to upgrade. i would like to toy with a solid state drive though, and if the 120mb drives go down much more, i’m probably going to bite. the reviews on those are very solid as far as seriously speeding up the system. as a practical matter, i think the bottleneck is the hard drive. on newegg.com, people rave about instant boots/starts with those drives.
