    Hello,

    Does anyone know if there are any numbers out there comparing the bootup time when the OS is on SSD vs HD?

    I'm getting ready to purchase a new iMac 27". It will be my first mac, and I'm trying to justify in my head the purchase of the SSD drive. I hear that a machine is faster if your OS is on SSD. I hear that it will bootup faster if the OS is on SSD. The question is how much faster? Is this increase in performance worth the extra $600 for the SSD drive?

    Thank you.

    These are laptops, but it should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. link.
