My laptop powers up in about 2 minutes ... the same amopunt of time it takes for my PA800 to ready itself. All my connections are cable-tied in a small pocket of the laptop carry case that sits nicely in the top V of my X stand. (does that make sense?)
I love having 80 titles to look at at a time and the ease of using the arrow keys to scrool through songs before I select it with the "enter" key.

I only use the laptop in dance situations, but I really miss the versatilioy when I don't have it. My setup SAVES me time, not adds to it.
