and about another 15 seconds to get to the windows xp login screen.
so i guess you guys are saying there's nothing i can do about it.
a simple "nothing you can do about it"...
the bios takes maybe 10 seconds or more to boot up. probably the same or more amount of time the windows xp logo shows.

how much weight could i stack on top of the 8890 without doing damage? the top cover.

which models are considered portable? that are lighter and with a longer battery life? im looking at the 4xxx's and 2xxx's. need it for some 3d cad apps and photoshop illustrator type programs. not much gaming.
