    1 second because I always sleep my systems, never power down.

    And for those saying really low numbers (ie: 7), seriously? Can you show a video? I was able to get 15 seconds off of a fresh install of Snow Leopard, but less than half that? Really? We are talking power button to a completely loaded desktop (icons, dock, etc). I highly doubt 7 seconds.

    About 10 seconds for the MP and about 15 for my uMBP both have SSDs, and to the guy who said 7 seconds, I call BS.

    Use better thread titles these kinds of ones are so annoying and they dont help when people are searching for these types of threads

    It's not, I have dual Intel X-25's (Raid 0) in my 8-Core MP with 10gb of ram, and it's not even that fast.

    Maybe you misread the thread, I'm not the one saying mine boots in 7 seconds, I'm the one saying that IT'S NOT POSSIBLE.

    It takes 5 seconds to fully load a VM of Ubuntu stored in a ramdisk. So I really don't think there is any computer loading in less than 10 seconds.

    LOL. Exactly what I was thinking. But if the OP is looking to see how long it takes to boot to the login screen, than Im around 27 seconds or so.

    My feelings are, well, I opened might as well give my .02 :D

    Not trying to be an ass, but I have seen a lot of those threads lately.

    You ever visit the iphone forum? lol :rolleyes:


    OP- It takes me about 15-24 seconds to power up. Specs in the signature.

    I just timed it. It took 31 seconds after pressing the power button.

    Anything is better than my windows from a few years back. That took like literally 10 - 15 minutes. >_>
