    this is what I want

    Ok, I dont know exactly what specs I need for a laptop so I come here to ask.

    I want my machine to start up in under 30 seconds. (not hibernation)

    All it will be doing is GPS/DVD/Music.

    The main thing about this PC is for it to start up in under 30 seconds. What kind of hardware power do I need for that?

    Currently I have a ****ty pentium 3 system with 256mb ram running nLite windows 2000 and it starts up in 1:33 seconds. It is rediculous.

    I guess the real reason for me getting a laptop is for
    1. Easy to hide away under my seat
    2. Faster start up

    try messing with this first on your existing system with Windows XP. 2000 will take longer.

    i dont want to have to reconnect the power to hook it up to acc. Its just on a 12v line right now and its fine. The startup time now with tinyXP is around 30 seconds so I'm satisfied.
