500 GB Hybrid Seagate SATA Hard Drive results in slower boot times?
I recently installed a 500 GB Hybrid Seagate SATA Hard Drive in my MacBook Pro 17" running OS 10.5.8. And though i am experiencing considerable reductions in application launch times the restart time has almost doubled from 38 sec with the old disc to 1min 8 sec with the new hybrid ... I have restarted several times in the hope that active memory would adjust but it did not help. I have repaired permissions and verified the disc with out anything notable. Any suggestions appreciated... thanks
