    Hi guys,

    I have a Macbook Pro with a 2.4Ghz and I was testing the boot time and this is what I got...

    Boot: 35.7 seconds

    Re-boot: 36.9 seconds

    Is this good or can I improve the boot time?...

    What is you boot time?

    On my 2.33 Ghz MBP with a 4200 RPM 200 GB Drive, I get approx 40 sec boot time. Seems improved with Leopard.

    I've not timed it but it's definitely a lot slower than it was in Tiger. The funny thing is I've noticed that when I restart or load Windows then go back to Leopard it doesn't take no where near as long to load.

    Your boot time is pretty good. I don't think you can realistically expect anything faster than that. Since most people don't boot often anyways, a 30-40 second wait really isn't a big deal.

    Just tested my MB and it booted in 28 seconds. Which I consider very fast.

    He has a SSD in there which is faster than HDDs, hence the quick boot times.
