What's the average boot time?

From switching on my PC to it being ready for action takes around 2 minutes, is that about a normal length of time?
(You know, first there are the usual clunks and whirrs from the hard drive, then the windows screen appears, then the desktop, more whirrs and clunks until the hourglass icon finally vanishes and its ready for liftoff at 2 minutes and counting..)

That that is not unusual.

It depends entirely on how many programs you have booting at start-up.
