    I installed the new El Capitan release yesterday. I expected it to take around 45 minutes to 1 hour. The actual time it took was 2 hours and 5 minutes from download (approx 30 minutes) to completion. This was running on a Macbook Pro 13" Late 2011.

    I was interested to see if this was the same experience for others.

    Mine initially showed over 35 hours. Took less than 18 minutes later, after cancelling it from the purchase tab, than clicking the Option/Alt key to start over.
