Hola- I'm trying to get an idea of the app launch times that people are experiencing with the new ssd harddrives. I am doing this since I'm not sure if mine are launching up to snuff since my time machine restore. I don't have my air with me now, but will post results when I get back to it. Make sure to have no other apps open at the time, and also if your opening iphoto or itunes it might be beneficial to post the size of the libraries that it's accessing. I know my iphoto opens kind of slow compared to the other apps-about 4 seconds, but this is likely due to my 6200 photos (no raw). Also, the iphoto app lags when I hit the red close bubble, anyone else experience this or is it instantaneous like the other apps? Also, apps tend to launch faster after first attempt since startup. This is if you open the app for the first time, quit the app, and open it again, I found the second time and those after are significantly fast.
