How about cutting the man some slack and responding with a bit of civility? He just purchased a top of the line MacBook Pro which probably cost him around $2500 or more. It's not too much to ask for a faster boot time after spending that kind of money.

To HSimm:

First, welcome to these forums. Trying to reduce a boot time of 1 min 20 seconds is not going to be easy. Keep in mind that the 8 GB of memory and the GPU + its dedicated memory undergoes a quick test during the POST.

Measure your boot time from the time you hear the POST chime to the time you see the log in dialog.

Also take a look at the following Mac Fixit article: Link
