    Macbook Pro Question (newbie)
    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.

    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.

    this is correct for leopard
    this is normal. i recently purchased a mac book with leopard and there is no osx start up screen. just the apple logo and then the blue screen and then to the login screen
