I am in my first week of using the Mac mini and luckily did not experience most of the problems reported by other users. However, the Mac mini boots up much slower than my 2017 MacBook. When I turn on my MacBook, once the Apple logo comes up, the loading bar is also displayed almost at the same time. When I turn on Mac mini, the Apple logo comes up but the loading bar only shows after few seconds later. Is everyone's Mac mini having the same start up times like mine? I would have expected a newer machine will boot up faster if not at least as fast as an older machine.
