Macbook Pro Slow Startup?
Macbook Pro Runs Slowly
So, your Macbook Pro is taking forever (or much longer) to startup? Studies show that when a slow startup is not only a waste of time, it also affects your health.
There is nothing more frustrating than a slow MacBook Pro or iMac when you need it to get the work done in the morning. Usually, a Macbook Pro takes 30 seconds (or less) to start up, depending on whether your Laptop has a hard disk drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD).
But if it takes much longer (or forever) to reach the first screen, then something is wrong.
Hopefully, by doing so, you can speed up the boot a little bit, and spend the time getting more work done.
