    How long does it generally take you to boot up? (as in, from pressing the power button to a fully loaded desktop)

    I have a factory 2.0 unibody macbook (late 2008) with about 90GB used up and it takes 50s to bootup. To put that into pespective i thought i would create this poll

    Around 35 seconds. 2.4 GHz Late 2008 MacBook with 2GB of RAM and 30 GB used of HD space. Running 10.5.8.

    To improve boot up time, try a Repair Disk, Repair Permissions and PRAM reset.

    So I am running a .4Ghz slower processor, 3X the HD space and snow leopard. How would that compare with others? I would need more results before i go down that route but thanks for your input
