    Using a 128 GB SSD MacBook Pro Retina Mid 2014....

    Cold Boot up...

    Public Beta #2 for me was about 12 seconds.

    Public Beta # 3 now 9 seconds. Timed twice.

    Safari is a bit faster as well. Overall, pleased with this OS over Mavericks:

    On my Hdd spinner (2011 MacMini), boot up time with Maverick was 46 seconds or so. With PB 2 it was 32/38 seconds, now with PB # 3, it's between 34/36 seconds.

    What are you guys seeing ??

    I am booting from an external hard drive and it takes about 1:30 minutes to boot and longer before it is ready! It seems no faster in PB3 than PB2, and possibly slower. Obviously the external hard drive will make it slower but Mavericks on external does not take this long!

    Log out, shutdown and quick switch users still goes to black screen for about 30 seconds before doing anything.

    Safari is very fast though.

    Safari is finally up to an acceptable speed. Before it was just painful to use, but now it's probably my favourite browser... HTML5 Youtube + Netflix!!! (Yes I know you can use extensions for HTML5 Youtube but its nice to have it as default).

    The start up was a bit buggy with the windows being out of place for a second and the shutdown wasn't right either. That's now sorted. On this SSD it always feels fast so it's hard to judge. Cannot wait for GM, OS X is a really great OS - this coming from someone who up until November of last year spent 90% of his time on Windows and about 10% on Linux.
