"Netbooks would be a whole lot more believable as companion devices if 
they switched on as fast as, say, a smartphone or PDA. However the 
combination of Intel’s Atom and generally wheezing specs tend to make 
starting-up - or resuming from standby - measure more around the one

change all that, though; at a recent Linux conference, they demonstrated 
an ASUS Eee PC that could boot to a Fedora desktop in just five seconds"
