    Hello, I'm running an i5 2.6 2c/2t with 8gb of ram in a MBP mid 2014. I'm noticing a big delay in start up time after 10.13.2 (waiting for the file vault unlock screen). Sometimes I think my system locked up. Seems to fluctuate from 1-2 minutes aprox. when before it just took close to 10-15 seconds.

    I would like to know if other people have experienced the same or similar problems in terms of loading speeds after the update.

    Cheers.

    What did you update from?

    How long has it been? Could well be encrypting/indexing and all sorts which will take a few days to complete. If it's just now that you've updated, give it the rest of the week.

    I use this laptop everyday and update as they come in. Haven't been paying attention to the version numbers sadly so I cannot answer correctly. No many people replied so I guess it's not a common issue.

    Thanks New_Mac_Smell.

    Don't be so quick to dismiss your issue. You've updated to High Sierra which has had quite a number of complaints about slow booting, slow performance, lock-ups etc. I'd do some more research...I suspect there is a real issue with 10.13.2 (High Sierra).

    I updated from the last Serra to the new High Serria and my 2011 Mac Book Pro. is now so slow i really can't use it for anything, click on anything and you get the little rolling color ball for many minuets then maybe you get nothing.

    It was a big mistake to upgrade i am now reinstalling some item have no idea just what it is might be just a security item, but hoping it will help.

    My Mac Book Pro even in 2011 never was near as quick or useful as my non Apple Windows computers, but today it's worthless.

    Just finished downloading and installing what ever Apple had shown as something i needed to get, and it seems to have made a big improvement to how my Mac Book Pro. works, will have to do more testing as i am still using another non Apple computer to finish writing this rant.

    There is another thread about the boot time increase with plenty of others with the same issues - many have boot times of 45 sec or more - mine included is about 45 sec - but mine is from an external USB connection.

    File Vault / Encryption probably is not helping but a lot of posters mention trim as the issue.

    will add the link to the post when I find it

    macOS High Sierra slow boot up
