Sounds good to me :shrug:

Bottom line: SSD is the FASTEST thing in the food chain. Buy into it.

necro bunp as i just found this thread:
my old Win 7 Laptop from 2010 still boots up within 20s from hitting the power button until the GUI is ready. Has never really been optimized

my new M1 Pro boots up in 16s from opening the lid to the password screen

That includes password login too.

Depends how fast I can type my password, but assuming zero time for that, 10-11 seconds (Windows 10, Ryzen 5 2600, Cakewalk).

Would be interesting too see how fast it is on the M1 Max CPUs
Do you have them all yet?

around 20s. OS Big Sur, 16,1 MBP, Cubase. if the goalpost changed to how long for the system to boot, 15 or 16 s.
current VE Pro project over a minute to load

I remember when that was a long, long wait. before SSD

Lol. When we got our M1 Minis this year, I went in to see if my old 2011 MiniServer was still functional. Took about two minutes to boot, and immediately the fan went on. Works. Dunno if anyone will give me anything for it. It was glacial.
The boot time on my M1 isn't as fast as I thought it would be. My 2015 iMac with Fusion drive did it in about 18 secs, before it got bloated up. I was surprised a few months ago when, after wiping it, it resumed working as fast as if it were almost new. Been meaning to sell it since the summer, but it's still sitting there. Not exactly the time to invite people over for coffee and test it out.

this thing was abysmal a little while back, minutes to even restart. But it was trying to resolve an external drive with a shite cable, it turns out. I thought the computer was dying, hadn't been a year. the cable made the computer think it should kill itself. but I had it tested, none of the thunderbolt ports were bad, just confused for a while.
