So far nowhere have I seen a good apples to apples comparison of the speed of the 2010 Macbook Air on Windows vs. Mac OS X. So I loaded up Boot Camp with a base install of Windows 7 Home Premium with normal updates. And compared it to the base install of OS X with normal updates. Both OS’s are fairly close in speed for similar operations with a couple of exceptions. Test system is a base $999 2010 Macbook Air 11.6″.
Mac OS X Boot = 30.2 Seconds
Windows 7 Boot = 37.5…
