    I've just timed the boot-up time of my MBP and it was 39 seconds and quite concerned...
    it is a 15" early 2011, 2GHz, 8GB 1333 with 500GB HD
    Is this a reasonable amount time to boot-up? :(

    ya mine about 35-40 seconds, now if you had a SSD hard drive it should be around 15-20

    I've noticed that my MBP (2011 - 2.3 GHz i7, 8Gb, Hi-res, AG) takes about this time to boot up with Lion, perhaps 10 seconds longer than it did in the very brief period (1 week) I used in with Snow Leopard. Comparing this to Windows PCs, it's still a dream. to use.

    ur time seems to be about average...

    upgrading to an SSD will significantly reduce boot times.

    My 2011 13" i5 just did 23 seconds with a momentus xt, but it is having shutdown issues.

    My mid-2009 13" booted up with a Momentus XT with Snow Leopard in about 15 seconds, once I installed Lion it went up to 24. My Intel 320 really doesn't have much better boot times than the XT though, it's like 19-20 seconds with Lion. IIRC, even with the stock HDD Leopard booted up in 30-40 seconds.

    I highly recommend the XT, for the price the faster boot time and app launch time is well worth it, but the HDD portions is a little on the slow side.

    Those 5400RPM Hard Drives suck!

    I can't believe Apple even messes with them. It really slows down your system.
