How fast does the 13" rMBP boot up and shut down? Are the times faster than the 13" MacBook Air?
Most estimates suggest we won't see a 12" MacBook Air boot up until 4Q 2014 or later.
On the other hand, a 13" rMBP will boot in less than 20 seconds.
The 13" rMBP is the clear winner.
I think he means the 11" or 13" Air and the "12" is just a typo...
If that's what you meant then there isn't much of a difference. The Pro is very slightly faster as it's got a faster CPU and GPU, but the main factor that determines how fast a machine boots up is the SSD/HDD and all of Apple's current laptops share the same SSD's.
From off, it takes my rMBP about 5-7 seconds until my password screen shows up. Reboot takes a little longer but the extra time is in the shut down process. About 20 seconds total.
Don't notice much difference between the Air and rMBP(have both in my house)
I too have noticed the shutdown time on my rMBP (late 2013) is quite long. Sometimes I get the "spinning wheel" when I shut down as well.
My shutdown is longer than boot but it's the same way on the Air. I don't have any issues with the spinning wheel though.
Similar question has come up before but I can't find the thread.
Anyway, do a restart and Click on "Reopen windows when logging back in".
Then do it again with the "Reopen..." box unchecked.
Don't know why but it sure improved my restart and shutdown times.
Hope it helps.
