    The boot time on my 2011 13" MBA has improved over 10.7.3, the gear does not even start to turn on the Apple boot screen before the login screen appears. Have not tried it on my iMac with a traditional HDD, but it has definitely improved on my MBA with SSD

    EDIT: My 10.8 install was also a direct upgrade from 10.7.3

    Good news, Lion is so slow to boot.

    Always keep in mind though that it isn't a fair to directly compare a fresh installation of ML to an existing installation of Lion, which might have multiple 3rd party apps and plugins that could bog down load times. You'd need to compare fresh installation of both.

    Mouse acceleration is unchanged from Lion. You still can't disable it without screwing up your tracking speed.

    My early 2011 macbook pro with a kingston hyper-x ssd upgraded from a install of lion takes 17 seconds from power button to logon screen.
