    im currently running a 15" MBP with 2.2 8gig 128 SSD. with 60 gigs left on my SSD from the time i click power to the time my safari page is OPEN with the homepage loaded is exactly 21 Seconds. i did this 3 times.. actually it was 20.9 and 21.3 and 21.6 but all the times over 21 i just dont think i can physically click the stop button fast enough on my iPhone. What kind of boot times is everyone else getting with their newly adopted babies???! :D:D

    Yep OEM SSD drive. Make sure you have your disk set as the target start up disk.

    Tested it twice. I pressed the power button and started the timer...15 seconds.

    I have a 2011 13" MBP i5, with a 60 GB SSD. I have around 27GB left.

    Same here although I'm 2.2 15" with the exception that I open Outlook for Mac 2011 instead of any browsers. Same amount of free space.

    I can't, it won't be *official* I don't have a stop watch. =( Add to that, I have a first gen uMPB, so I am sure I won't get anywhere near close to your boot times. I can, however, tell you that in the two plus years I've had this machine, other than for software updates, I bet I've rebooted it less than ten times. I once went 62 days without a reboot... It was *SWEET*!!!

    Yes I do. Comparing the boot time to my Vista laptop is day and night. I will time the boot time, but I am impressed thus far. Also, I have an outdated 5400 HDD. ;)


    EDIT: I timed my boot time with the stopwatch in my iPhone and it was 31.9 seconds. I guessed right, as it was around 30 seconds, give and take. :)

    How long does it take your folks with an ssd to shutdown? Instantaneously?

    I would, but my Vista equipped laptop cannot be shutdown. :( I have to hibernate the damn thing otherwise it can take up to three hours to boot up. :eek:

    I researched the problem and my motherboard is kaput, along with other components. Also, when it does decide to boot, I have to run the recovery utility or whatever it is called to "diagnosis" the problem only for it to fail.

    However, I was not comparing the boot time of the MBP to the current condition of my defunct laptop. I did not time it when it was running tops, but it has to be around 1-2 minutes.

    EDIT: 31.9 seconds is the boot time with the 5400 HDD! The Vista machine was K.I.A. LOL

    Boot times are rather irrelevant, how often do you shutdown your machines? I never do unless an update tells me to or I need bootcamp.

    Power on to desktop is about 11 seconds
    Power on to desktop and chrome is about 13 seconds
    Power on to desktop and Adobe Illustrator, Lightroom, and Photoshop is about 22-25 seconds (varies quite a bit for some reason)
