Shorter Boot up Times for Computers

Booting up my lovely Gateway takes a lot less time than older computers I have had and have. However, NOTHING is faster than press a button on a PDA and having the data right there.
Cnet writes With [Intel’s] Robson, a PC pulls data and applications off an add-in flash memory card and Intel software, rather than the PC’s hard drive. Flash reacts more quickly than hard drives, thus cutting down the time it takes to launch an application. Potentially, notebook users could experience a longer battery life because the hard drive, which is spun by a motor, wouldn’t have to work as hard.
