    Ive had my machine now for about 2 weeks, I'm just so in love with it.. I thought I would check out the booting and shuttdown times on it..

    Booting up my machine took 19.7 seconds.. Pretty awesome huh?
    Shutting down took about 2.4 seconds to complete..

    I noticed you put "160GB Intel X25-M SSD" in the description, did you get a good deal on that?

    Well, Im from Norway and paid about 3000 NOK = 478,16 USD (with todays currency), but its not comparable to the US prices as you can see.. The price is OK to be in Norway, it was the cheapest online store I could find..

    The total price on my lappy with the memory and hdd upgrade was at 24.000 NOK = 3825,31 USD..

    I also took a bootup test between;

    iMac 27"
    - Core i7 2.8GHz
    - 8GB RAM
    - 1TB Seagate @ 7200 rpm
    - ATI Radeon HD 4850, 512MB

    MacBook Pro 15"
    - Core i7 2.66GHz
    - 8GB RAM
    - 160GB SSD (Intel X25-M) (Faaaaaaaast!) :)
    - Nvidia Geforce GT 330M, 512MB

    Take a look at this, as you can see the MacBook Pro are way faster than the 27" iMac, in my opinion the SSD drive is the reason this MacBook Pro-baby is so dangerously fast..

    I also have to say that there is some more installed programs on the iMac than on the MBP.. Just so you know that it may be a bit slower because of that..

    Did you start your timer the exact second you turn on the power button? I get about 12-13 seconds if I wait to turn the timer on until the screen turns on..

    Ive seen some people doing it that way..

    The Intel X25-M is definitely worth it. It's just wicked fast. Although it costs more than $400 (I got mine for $475 around Christmas season), it makes your computer lag free basically. My four-year-old MacBook Pro (core duo) seems to be as fast as my Core 2 Quad Ubuntu box in general usage :eek:
