I am also interested in comparing App(VM) start times, to compare the performance. I have run the following test after boot and with only sys-firewall and sys-net running: Test on my Lenovo x230 Intel Core i5-3320M @ 2.60Ghz 16 GB RAM 500 GB SanDisk SSD Qubes 4.0rc3 Coreboot'able startup/boot till xterm window = 17sec (normal AppVM) startup/boot till xterm window = 21sec (Disposable AppVM) Test on my Lenovo W540 Intel Core i7-4900MQ @ 2.8 Ghz 16 GB RAM 480 GB Samsung SSD Qubes 4.0rc3 Not Coreboot'able startup/boot till xterm window = 15sec (normal AppVM) startup/boot till xterm window = 16sec (Disposable AppVM) If the AppVM is already running launching new applications is done within in 1 or 2 sec. Your question regarding hardware recommendation: I would look at the Coreboot HCL/Compatibility List and choose a model which fits your preferred display size and resolution. https://www.coreboot.org/Supported_Motherboards Using Coreboot you can also remove large parts of Intel ME. Then as a 2nd test check the Qubes HCL https://www.qubes-os.org/hcl/  -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
