from laptop user point of view, i agree w/ u guys; wakeup, switch on, make tea(or kofe; kofe good for heavier concentration/mem tasks for the brain), come back and lap pc rdy, for pm have extra options (eg, crack open beer from fridge, or whatever), or stretch out the neck/shoulder muscles/hand stretchs, and being ready for tht keyboard, yes.
ms win os(i use xp pro) has packed so much(fat b/c of the system design; compared to more effecient modular system design of linux os,and mac/unix); eg, the complex ms os design requires more mem and storag; i have learned some methods (optimization tweaks, ap substitutions, uninstall or delete the not used) to clean up after the install, to make startup and run faster, though so much u have to be cautious or could mess up; note, learned to change habits as laptop user; eg, i turned off start up of skype w/ start up(point being dont have on until u rdy to use; helps w/ battery,cpu use/ heat issues). next step for me, learn how to custom install. ths adequate enough for improved start up.
newer laptops now have options of ssd, which were described being more durable drive; didn’t hear about start up being slow for ssd, thx for the input.
ths bios upgrade for sys7 appears being once again added hype, as part of the ms win os design complex. why i said hype, eg,
b/c time used learning/doing methods for tweaking and optimizing ms os to function, why not learn/use linux(easier option). for me, i dont have to diet, though my laptop pc is about to start healthy diet: dual partition w/ linux, yes.
