For those wondering just how quick Asus’ ExpressGate instant-on operating system is compared to traditional Windows, you’re in the right place. Sammy Production did a video benchmark comparing boot times side-by-side on two Asus Eee PC T101MT netbooks.
Asus ExpressGate is basically a rebranded version of Splashtop that took around 20 seconds to boot. For those wondering why it wasn’t faster, it is because there are two versions of Splashtop. The one normally found on notebooks and desktops uses 512MB of Flash memory and takes around 5 seconds to boot. The other uses the hard disk partition (as in the netbook) that means it’s slower. Check out the video after the jump.
