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!

18 seconds starting with the moment the power button is touched

Early 2011 MBP 17" Intel 320 160GB SSD with stock 750GB HDD

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

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.

wow i feel bad about my startup time after seeing all these short startup times with new model SSDs.

my MBP takes 35 seconds from the time i press the power button until the login screen with my Intel X25-m 120GB =/

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:
