The times listed below reflect the time it took for the system to power up until the cursor appeared with no busy indicator on the desktop background. Times were measured with a stopwatch and runs repeated three times in an effort to remove human error.
Looking at the plot above, we see that the ASUS VX1 was one of the fastest systems in terms of booting into Windows. Here, the notebook needed only 31.5 seconds to boot into Windows and be ready for action. Although we always want these times to be lower, the VX1 boots extremely quick thanks to the fact that ASUS does not load the system with bloatware from the factory.
In terms of recovering from standby mode, the ASUS VX1 returned stellar results. Here, the system needs only 2.9 seconds to fully recover back into Windows. To put this in perspective, the second-fastest systems requires an additional half-second and last place needs more than a second and a half.
Once again, the ASUS VX1 finds itself on top of the podium with a score that ties the Dell 6000 for top honors. In this case, the notebook requires less than 11 seconds to fully recover from Hibernation mode and into Windows. In some cases, notebooks took as long as twenty five seconds meaning that the ASUS VX1 was ready and willing a whole 14 seconds sooner.
