Not getting it for my desktop, but my laptop which takes 12-20 seconds for CS3 and i use the entire suite, sometimes i dread opening them. I usually have 3-4 of them open along with 4 browsers and about 50 tabs each, so memory gets a bit low and even worst GDI resources and handles get used up. Its the reason people open notepad to write something simple rather than word, which is so much better and secure, its the speed in opening them. imsabbel, i don't know where you went to school, but 3 - 6 to 7 does not equal 1. This thing is twice as fast as the next fastest thing out there. That's nothing to sneeze at. This is pretty much the SSD revolution everyone was expecting when SSD drives were released but ultimately failed disappointed. I wonder how well it can pass the infamous 9 thread test.
