I recently got a rMBP 2.7/16/512. It takes 13.6 seconds to start from pressing the power button to usable desktop (~11 seconds from the startup chime). Is this normal/average? I ask because I have read that some people boot in 8-9 seconds. iTunes is all that is in my login items, and VirtualBox is in my StartupItems. In general, what are your processor and ram specs and what is your boot time? Anyone know any tweaks to speed up boot time, or am I making a big deal out of nothing?
