I cannot believe you have not returned that POC yet.
If there is a faulty component, which from your info seemed like the case, no point in trying to tweak the software!

Also, I am curious, how were you planning on speeding it up using the Command Line?

How long does it take you to get on this thread with your iPhone using a bookmark.

I have an old Mac Book Air with XP, it takes about 3 minutes to log in start up networking, load printer and scanner software, it takes about 45 seconds for the Mac OS to boot and get to a browser. How fast can you expect Microsoft Windows to actually boot?
By any chance is it also a touch screen with a camera to do facial recognition to log in?

My Win7 tower (with similar specs to the OP) boots in 30 to 35 seconds. That's from cold off, through password, and to a fully usable desktop. That includes a handful of auto start apps, including Outlook. From there I can have my 7 "home page" tabs open in FF in a few seconds.
