I have a late 2013, 15" Retina MacBook Pro, sporting 16GB of memory and a 500GB APPLE SSD SM0512F. I wouldn't begin to know how to open her up and make any alterations, so everything's stock from the factory.My boot up time is a couple of seconds. What Mac and what hard drive are you using?
Very glad to hear you're not experiencing the same problem. I thought the startup delay was much more widespread? Or is Apple just targeting different machines with different bugs?
