I was quite suprised at the boot times of my Mac running Panther and 1 year old laptop running XP MCE2005:

Laptop (AMD Athlon 64 3200+, 512mb ram) = 85 sec
Mac (iMac G3 DV 400MHz, 640mb ram) = 86 sec

This from pressing the power button to being usable. The laptop does have a 4200rpm hard drive (as opposed to 7200rpm in iMac) and 128mb less ram, but it shouldn't make much of a difference.

MacBook Pro 15" 2.2GHz, PowerMac G4 Cube + 17" LCD Studio Display, 2x1TB WD My Book Studio (FW800)
iPod Classic 160GB (Black), 3rd gen 40GB, iPhone 2G 16GB + Denon AH-C551K
NAD C370 + B&W 686 + Grado SR80
