My emerge -e world is over 700 packages and it only takes about an hour and a half.
Yeah, Duby, I've got an undervolted i5 Sandy Bridge in my ultrabook. And until the 3.9 kernel hits [stable] in Arch, I have to compile all my own kernel builds and they take hours on this thing. So lucky for you for having a great CPU, but not everyones so lucky.
