How much of an improvement depends on your operating system, hardware, and what software is loading at boot — but you can make it down to 10-20 seconds, even on an older early 2009 machine. Your Mac OS X desktop will load much more quickly after you log in too. Even if you have a lot of nasty bloatware running at boot, your desktop will become usable much more quickly.

Everything happens as quickly as you could possibly want. That time spent waiting that you don’t notice because it’s just the usual routine, all add up.

If you look in the Memory section of the Activity Monitor utility you can see if your system is low on RAM. In OS X Mountain Lion and earlier there was a small pie chart which showed the amount of free RAM against that reserved for critical system processes. You might want to consider upgrading your RAM if the green area in the chart is often below about a quater of the chart’s area.

In OS X Mavericks Activity Monitor the Memory section in shows a Pressure chart instead. If you’re in the green your doing ok and it is indicating that your usage does not exceed the system’s memory capability. If this chart’s numbers are regularly high, you may need to upgrade your RAM.
