    Hey guys I recently got a brand new 15" MBP (late '11) and it starts up in right around 45 seconds after several heavy-duty apps have been installed (FCP, Adobe CS5), and after about ten days of use.



    Share your startup times, people!

    That is a good time with an MBP using an HDD.
    But why don't you just use the SLEEP feature?

    SSDs are usually 10-20 secs

    HDDs are 45sec to a little over a minute

    Yep SSD or the new Seagate 750 XT should improve your boot times.

    Probably around 45 seconds, I never shut down unless an update requires it, wake from sleep is instant.

    11 seconds. (Yes, SSD and Snow Leopard)

    I just live for these kinds of threads. :D



    Some of us are quite mobile and need to squeeze every minute from the battery between uses.

    about 20 seconds with the Apple SSD and Lion 10.7.2. I never timed it precisely.

    Anyone got a SSD and is running SL?

    That's what I said just a few posts above yours. :) Many here cut their SSD teeth on SL. (Some painfully I might add :eek:)

    Ah right, sorry. 11 seconds is nice.

    Btw, concerning your earlier post: Rebooting the system and restarting all applications might consume more power than 1 hour of sleep.

    I've timed mine, from power on to ready desktop.

    15" 2010 MBP with OS X 10.6.8
    512 GB Samsung 830 SSD = 10 secs.

    15" 2011 MBP with OS X 10.7.2
    512 GB Samsung 830 SSD = 14 secs.

    Mid 2013 15'' Macbook Pro W/Retina Display, I would say around 20 seconds or less for start up time. My Mid 2010 15'' Macbook Pro went for around 1 to 2 minutes :eek:
