    That's a great time. Congrats on the new SSD,

    thanks man! i was really hesitant because of the short warranty on a refurbed SSD. considering that the corsair force series (sandforce) has a decent record, i thought the odds are with me, so i bit the bullet and spent the $120 dollars. cmonnn it's hard to not buy 1$/GB SF drive!!!

    it's been a couple weeks now, and everything is running so smoothly. now i can forget about hibernate, and just shutdown super fast.

    the 2nd of many upgrades i will bring to my lappy (first being the 98Whr OEM battery).

    next, backlit. after... GPU/CPU. i am very happy the GPU is upgradable.
    or.. maybe a 1.8" HD. i found an microSATA 1.8" HD space and slot on the bottom of my motherboard. crazy business.

    i guess i will do RAM last.
    I think you have already done the best upgrade you can do. And good luck with the SSD. I love mine and won't be without one again.



    I'll Second that

    To cut 40 seconds off your restart time is really good. Not many people can do that.
    It is, I had some help from Harry Potter and Hogwarts magic.

    In that case I'm disappointed. I would have thought that Harry could do better.

    I love my new Rig, especially with almost no start-up programs.

    I got a restart time of 73 seconds. Seems to me it's counting the BIOS time as well. But yeah on a year old Windows 7 with countless software installs and uninstalls I was expecting a bit better but oh well :) SSD is next in the list!

    If you used the file from this site for restart time, it measures the shutdown time, POST and loading windows time.

    There is a free program called bootracer that just measures startup time.
