    if you're making a choice between the new unibody & the older version (2006-2008) of the mac book pro, opt for the older one. It's more durable, easier to repair w/ more available parts. Hope this helps. :)

    The deal breaker for me with the 2011 Macbook Pro is that they have Intel GMA graphic cards, and not NVIDIA.

    So that's the normal start-up time for the latest MBP. I was a little concerned when I counted my colleague's MacBook 2010's start-up time. It's around 35 seconds. I used the same counting technique on my laptop and it was slower by 5 seconds. Hehe.

    mine boots up in 15 seconds. MBP 13 2010... (8GB RAM / SF SSD)

    if connected to my external display - 20 seconds... (it takes some extra time identifying displays I guess)

    less than 5 seconds? from cold boot? - come on...

    by "boot up", I mean - from the time you pressed the power button until you reach the desktop.

    I'm also using a G.Skill SSD (Phoenix Pro) + G.Skill 8GB mems


    post a video of your boot up here (with timer of course) or it never happened.
