    Hiii,

    I have noticed that the startup time of my 13" 2011 (low end) is rather slow.. It takes about 43 seconds from pressing the power button to seeing the desktop, I thought it would be faster, but what about you guys?

    I understand the uselessness of this question now: Mac users don't turn off their computer ;)

    Haha, after seeing so many of these post's and no one really researching through the forums I wanted to have fun. I figure if there is already 100+ of these topics why not lie b/c apparently the others aren't true enough.

    When I need to shutdown for updates?

    20 seconds… I think that's good enough. Wake from sleep is immediate.

    Do you guys realize that you are bantering about the same amount of time that it takes to pour a cup of coffee? I mean, PC or Mac, if you are like me you are going to hit the power button on your laptop and go pour a cup of coffee. It doesn't matter if it takes 22 seconds, or 45 seconds to boot up; you are going to be back at your desk well after it loads the desktop.

    Unless it is a PC. Then you may as well call ahead and have someone push the power button a few minutes before you arrive. ;)

    All this is true except for the many of us who don't see the need to shut down their Macs every night. :D
