hi guys...

i just purchased a new 17" Macbook Pro.

upon start up, i don't get the MAC OSX Logo with the blue bar which normally shows the start up the computer.

instead, it just starts with the standard grey apple screen, then goes to a all blue screen and then to my desktop.

is this normal?

the only reason i ask is because on every other MAC i've used that MAC OSX logo and loading screen has appeared.

thoughts?

I'm not exactly sure, but I think it might be Leopard. My old mac with tiger showed the bar, but my new one with leopard skips it. there's nothing wrong though.

Yes, this is normal. I think it is Leopard. My older Mac shows the bar, my new one just leaps up to the desktop. No worries, all is well on your Mac.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
