    When i turn on my MBP, i hear the sound but the apple appears on the screen only in about 4-5 seconds after this. Please, check this on your machine and write the result here. In my case, everything is working fine, but i think the logo appeared faster before, so it might be and indicator of some internal problem..

    Yes, it is fine, but there must be a reason...it was not like this all the time.

    If you think something is wrong, then run some system utility checks.

    you can run the apple hardware test located in the first install disc that came with your computer. Hold the "c" button during bootup.

    It might also be the Start Up disk selection. Next time you go into OS X, go to System Preferences > Startup Disk and reselect the OS X on your computer.

    Or you could just go to disk utilities and verify that anything is wrong.

    Usually it seems faster in the beginning cause it is so much faster than what you're used to. You really are worrying over nothing.

    I find mine is slow if i have my ipod connected. Also one thing that speeds it up is selecting the disk in the startup preference pane and clicking the restart. Thats always fixed my slow problems.

    I agree, but if your really worried take the tests. Download onyx and take those tests too.

    You worry too much. Sometimes your mind has just caught up with the computer's speed and the time "seems" to change.

    I have noticed a slight difference in time for the Apple logo to appear, can't explain why it happens.

    But certainly nothing to worry about.
