    I have a new 09' 20" iMac Core Duo 2.66 with Snow Leopard.

    Shut Down: = 7 Seconds. Tried 4 times, same result.
    Start Up: 42-44 seconds to Login Screen
    Login To Desktop fully loaded: = 6 Seconds

    I am not impressed by the Start up or Login. I believe I clocked Leopard at the exact same speeds.

    Overall I am not noticing much difference in anything.

    I'm not sure how everyone counts startup times. I do it from the time the spinner starts moving on the gray screen...

    Mid 2007 MacBookPro, Santa Rosa Chipset, 2.4GHz Core2Duo w/4GB RAM...

    Snow Leopard:
    Startup, straight to desktop: 23 sec.
    Shutdown: 2-3 sec.

    Leopard:
    Startup, straight to desktop: just over 50 secs.
    Shutdown: 10-12 sec.

    Now I just need to pop in a 7200 RPM 500GB drive and I will be cruising along with my outdated MBP!
