    I recently upgraded my MBP to the entry level 2011 13". I just now swapped the hard drive for the 1TB Samsung Spinpoint MT2 and the bootup time is significantly slower. Why is this happening? :confused:

    What RPM was the stock drive and what RPM is the 1TB?

    Both are 5400rpm - It's probably mostly because you went from 2 platters to 3 (among other factors)

    Edit: your 1TB also has a 12ms response time - I think most laptop hard drives are half that. You bought one of the earliest 1tb drives, I wouldn't be be surprised of it's a bit slow.
