    hi, i bought 2.4 MBP and i did fresh install on the machine.
    however
    i tried to boot from cold and to my surprise my 2 years old MacBook 2.0 boot up much faster then my brand new , fresh install 2.4 MBP.

    are tthis normal ?

    is there any benchmark software for mac ?

    i know that the gaming department is much better on my MBP,
    but for any other simpler task i wonder how it's compared to my old maacbook.

    here my spec:

    New 2.4 MBP Unibody
    2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo
    4GB RAM DDR 3
    500GB 5400 rpm

    Old 2.0 MacBook Black
    2.0 Ghz Core 2 Duo
    2GB RAM DDR 2
    250GB 5400 rpm

    the slower booting time alone already making my sligtly regret on buying this so called "faster" MacBook Pro.

    or is there something wrong with my MBP ?

    thx.

    Doesn't the OS go through the ram during boot up? The more you got, the longer it will take?

    I think that you should try iBench or Xbench. Boot time measurement is really not a good performance test.

    yes, it does, i guess that's the reason the OP has longer boot up time.

    so i guess this is normal then ?
    does brand of RAM effect this as well regardless of the size ?
