    I've ordered Parallels for my new quad which will be here in about 27 days.

    While I'm still in a position to change my mind, has anyone actually timed how long it takes to go from OSX, up-and-running, re-boot, and be operational again with Windows using Boot Camp. Is it a realistic a-few-times-a-day thing, or just to be used VERY occasioanlly?

    Takes me less than 60 seconds to boot into XP.
