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.
My 1993 RiscPC boots to a usable desktop in just under 4 seconds, mind you the OS is in ROM.

Funny how we seem to be going backwards in some respects.
