The latest Vaio Z-series machines have an Insyde H2O UEFI firmware with 
BIOS compatibility. The boot time is not noticably faster. I /believe/ 
that the Aspire One is based on the same platform, so is technically an 
EFI machine - however, there doesn't appear to be any means of actually 
booting through it (rather than the compatibility layer) so the 
difference is pretty academic.
