    I've tried several SSDs (Vertex 3, M4 etc.) in my MBP 13" but nothing gives me lower than 14 second boot time.

    Here's the Kingston V+ 100

    If anyone has a 13" MBP that boots in 12 seconds, like some people say, I would love to see a video of it.

    Isn't that pretty fast though? I mean unless you gotta like log onto your mac and disarm a missile in less than 30 seconds I think you should be okay :cool:

    Booting my laptop fast is very important to me.
    My Vertex 3 boots in 20 seconds. And yes I do care about 8 seconds (40%) difference.

    Here's an answer: put your Mac to sleep. That way you have a 1-2 second boot up time!

    I hardly ever restart any of my Mac's!!

    If you read back you can find the answer. It's all in the thread.

    Well in your first post you said the best you got was 14 seconds, then a few posts later you claimed you "only" got 20 seconds, so I see where others are coming from.

    I agree with others though that a few seconds isn't important, especially just 2 seconds. 8 seconds, maybe, but what are you doing that you need to constantly reboot your Mac in 12 seconds?

    I think you will find he got 14 seconds with the Kingston V100+ (think thats what its called), then said he got 20 seconds with the vertex 3.

    Glad to see someone is reading well.

    It makes no sense the SATA III Vertex 3 takes ± 20 seconds to boot, while the SATA II Kingston does it in 14 seconds.

    There are people that claim their Vertex 3 boots in 12 seconds and I want to see proof of that.
