In looking into this a little further, I believe that the Intel Rapid Start Technology may be the key.  You need a Z77/H77/Q77 chipset to utilize the technology, however it's supposed to make a dramatic difference in boot time.  My brother just built a new system around a Gigabyte Z77 motherboard and his boot times (with an SSD) are very quick, much quicker than my system using an older Gigabyte Z68 motherboard.  It wouldn't surprise me if the laptop in the video you saw was using a Z77 chipset.  I think that Leon had the answer all along (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51184180 ).  Take a look at the Rapid Start Technology PDF that was linked in Leon's post.
