Its not smoke and mirrors. Systems are completely capable of booting this
quickly. Believe what you want though.

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.

Good info on the Vaio Z-series.  Out of curiosity, is there a UEFI shell/console accessible on the Acer One?  Or is this permanently in legacy BIOS compatibility mode? Dont know if you actually know or have access to the hardware...
